Steve McCurry. Animals


Van een olifant die liefdevol op de schouder van zijn baas rust tot een hond die achter op de fiets door de puinhopen van Kabul wordt gereden – de beelden van Steve McCurry vertellen duizend verhalen, die stuk voor stuk een ontroerende les in menselijkheid zijn. De legendarische fotojournalist presenteert zijn favoriete dierenfoto’s in deze caleidoscopische collectie, die zich uitstrekt van Azië tot het Caribisch gebied en van de Verenigde Staten tot Oost-Afrika.

‘Verhalen over mensen en verhalen over dieren, verteld door een briljante dichter van de hedendaagse fotografie.’

Animal Magnetism
Steve McCurry turns his lens on creatures around the world

In Animals, we discover a different side to the famed photographer who skillfully explores animals’ complex relationship with humans and the environment.

Tenderness abounds, particularly in scenes of unkempt street dogs sleeping contentedly next to a human. But there’s also a kind of essential solitude, with animals belonging to no one and simply wandering through life with only their survival instincts to guide them. We witness camels caught in the crossfire during the first Gulf War; a shepherd from Northern Pakistan tenderly feeding his goats; Beverly Hills designer dogs; race horses on a Hong Kong rooftop; elephants in Thailand, and more images selected by McCurry from his vast archives.

Through McCurry’s lens, we discover an appreciation for each creature’s beauty and silent dignity. This kaleidoscopic collection is at once a beautiful travelogue and a touching tribute to the creatures who share our planet.
