Portraits | Steve McCurry

#FaceOnCover #MayMontage I had a mini version of this coffee table book in the 90s, and flipped through the portraits until the binding disintegrated. Like most people at the time, I was captivated by “Afghan Girl” and her striking green eyes, but even more than the 1984 National Geographic cover shot which was used for the cover of this Phaidon collection (left) I remember the controversy surrounding the photo in the 90s.👇🏼

IndoorDame It came out McCurry didn‘t know who she was, and he went back several times to look for her. He finally found her identity in 2002 and took a second series of photos (right) that stuck with me even more strongly. 3d
