Steve McCurry: Unguarded, Untold, Iconic
Producer: Karen Smyles

Friday Arts goes to the Michener Museum in Doylestown to check out a breathtaking exhibit by photographer Steve McCurry. The exhibit will be there July 16th thru October 23rd, 2016. Best known for his 1985 National Geographic cover photograph Afghan Girl, Steve McCurry continues to fascinate with his stunning photographs of locations from around the globe.

The exhibit highlights images taken throughout his decades-long relationship with Afghanistan, its landscape and, most importantly, its people. Visitors are able to view both new and familiar photographs and experience Afghanistan through McCurry’s thought-provoking and visually arresting lens.

Born in Philadelphia and raised in Newtown Square, McCurry currently keeps studios in both New York City and Exton, PA. Friday Arts sits down to talk with McCurry in his Exton studio to find out why Afghanistan has come to play such an important role in his work and his life.
