Steve McCurry

Né en 1950 - Etats-Unis

BIOGRAPHIE

Une jeune Afghane aux yeux verts, un vert et un regard profond qui vous transperce littéralement au premier contact. Autour de son visage, une étoffe rouge qui l’enveloppe, le tout sur un fond de la même couleur que ses pupilles.

Ce portrait, vous l’avez sûrement reconnu ou en tout cas déjà vu. Il s’agit de la couverture du magazine National Geographic représentant la jeune Sharbar Gula, réfugiée Afghans à l’époque. A l’origine de ce mythique cliché, le photographe Steve McCurry, qui inscrit définitivement son nom dans l’Histoire de la Photographie ce jour-ci.

Né en 1950 à Philadelphie, Steve McCurry est un photographe américain.

Avant de découvrir sa vocation de photojournaliste, Steve McCurry débute des études de cinéma à l’Université de Pennsylvanie, souhaitant se spécialiser dans le documentaire. Une fois son diplôme obtenu avec les félicitations, il entame un voyage à travers l’Europe, il n’a alors que 19 ans. Par la suite, il étend son périple jusqu’en Amérique du Sud et en Afrique. En véritable globe trotteur il s’imprègne de chacun de ses voyages, des cultures qu’il découvre.

Pour répondre à sa passion d’explorateur il va s’orienter vers la profession qui va lui permette de poursuivre ses aventures, il devient ainsi photographe. Après deux années au sein d’un même journal, il part pour l’Inde en 1978 et décide de devenir photojournaliste indépendant et réalise alors des piges.

Photographe sans peur, Steve McCurry se rend au cœur de nombreuses zones de conflits internationaux pour couvrir les événements. On se souviendra notamment de ses reportages sur la guerre Iran-Iraq, la guerre civile au Cambodge, la Guerre du Golfe ou encore l’éclatement de l’Ex-Yougoslavie.

Il intègre dès 1986 la célèbre agence Magum aux côtés des plus grands photojournalistes de son époque.
