Untold Stories Behind Steve McCurry's Famous Photographs Published in a New Book

Fellow bibliophiles, photobook hoarders, and photography enthusiasts, here's something that you should certainly add in your wishlist. In case you haven't heard yet, Steve McCurry has recently launched a new book which tells the untold stories about his most iconic photographs.

Through the aptly-titled Steve McCurry Untold: The Stories Behind the Photographs, photography enthusiasts and fans of Steve McCurry’s work can now leaf through his documents, archives, journals, mementos, and other personal materials to get a picture of how he works.

For the first time ever, the renowned photographer also tells the stories behind 14 of his most important assignments, such as rail travel in India in 1983, the plight of the Tibetan people in 2000 to 2006, the effects of the Monsoon in 1984, and the September 11 events in 2001.

There’s certainly no one else who can introduce the book better than the celebrated photographer himself, so we leave the rest for McCurry to tell in the clip below:
