Steve McCurry’s Epic Train Photography

Best known for his fascinating image of an Afghani woman with striking green eyes, Steve McCurry’s photography has been described as “the most evocative colour photography”. During the eighties he spent time in India photographing train stations, creating a visual narrative of day to day activities and capturing his unique perspective in this fascinating personal account. We’re delighted that Steve McCurry has granted us permission to share this breathtaking photography. Steve says, “when the train pulls into the station there is a mad dash of humanity. People push through the doors and climb through windows to capture an elusive seat to avoid the punishment of standing for an entire trip.” The effect is a collection of photographs which, though sometimes sad, are always thought provoking.
