Steve McCurry Tells His “Untold” Stories

Magnum photographer Steve McCurry is one of the heavyweights in National Geographic's stable of assignment photographers with more than 13 books to his credit. "Untold: The Stories Behind the Photographs" by Phaidon Press is not a visual feast for the coffee table but an insightful, autobiographic look at 14 of McCurry's select images including the famous Afghani Girl. “Untold: The Stories Behind the Photographs” explores McCurry’s archive including handwritten notes and records and his personal mementos and ephemera from travels abroad.

For more information on “Untold,” visit Phaidon’s web site and read an interview with publisher Amanda Renshaw who has done nine books with McCurry since their collaboration began in 1997. Work from "Untold" is currently on display at the Peter Fetterman Gallery in Santa Monica, California through November 30, 2013.

It's a good read and well printed. Definitely recommend buying it. More importantly, sit down and study the images. Use his insight to help break down the story behind them and how best to capture such moments in your own work.
