This seems to be the keynote of photographer Steve McCurry, who come to Sao Paulo with the invitation of SP Photo Fest and of the magazine Fotografe Melhor for workshops and lectures at the Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), between May 20th and 23d. It is also planned an exposition at the Galeria Babel, curated by Eder Chiodetto and Jully Fernandes.

McCurry that was already present in the greatest conflicts of the world, has become known in the 1980s when shooting an Afghan girl, Gula. Those green eyes made the trip around the world on the cover of National Geographic. His photos also bring us the conflicts in places like Iraq, the former Yugoslavia, Lebanon and of course Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, his career as a photojournalist began to be recognized. Dressed in local clothes, crossed the border with Pakistan after the Soviet invasion in late 1979. He published the first images of the conflict. He also stayed in India,Tibet, Burma and photographing the temples of Angkor Wat, as well as the attack on the Twin Towers in the United States in 2001.
