Steve McCurry at Ivorypress

7 / 11 / 2016

Ivorypress and Phaidon invited you on 3 November at 7 p.m. to a discussion between photographer Steve McCurry and journalist Peio H. Riaño. It was a unique opportunity to get to know On Reading, the latest publication by the prolific photographer, and to listen some of the most fascinating stories that have led him to create iconic photographs throughout the more than thirty years of his career. Phaidon published the Spanish edition of this new book as a new addition to the other eight publications about the photographer’s work that are not yet available in their frontlist. All of the books could be acquired at the Ivorypress bookshop and McCurry was available to sign copies after the event.

Steve McCurry (Philadelfia, 1950)

Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than thirty years, with scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name. Born in a suburb on Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; McCurry studied film at Pennsylvania State University, before going on to work for a local newspaper. After several years of freelance work, McCurry made his first of what would become many trips to India. Traveling with little more than a bag of clothes and another of film, he made his way across the subcontinent, exploring the country with his camera.
