Steve McCurry is currently one of the most respected photojournalists in the world today. He is noted for his famous photograph of the Afghan Girl which originally appeared on National Geographic magazine. He is also the last film photographer who used the last ever produced roll of Kodachrome transparency film.

McCurry shoots in both film and digital and his photographs have been displayed in various exhibitions. But in his current self-titled show, Steve McCurry, his photographs are displayed in an unusual way. Designer Fabio Novembre set up dome-like structures in the museum with the photographs hanging on the insides.

“This has the dual effect of giving the viewer time ‘alone’ with the photograph while allowing them to choose their next stop rather than being directed on their journey round the gallery space as is traditionally the case.” (via Phaidon)
