Unguarded, Untold, Iconic: Afghanistan through the Lens of Steve McCurry

Co-Curated by Kelsey Halliday Johnson, former Curatorial Fellow in Photography and New Media, and Louise Feder, Assistant Curator

July 16, 2016 - October 23, 2016

Unguarded, Untold, Iconic: Afghanistan through the Lens of Steve McCurry has been named one of 12 must-see summer exhibitions by USA Today.

Best known for his 1985 National Geographic cover photograph Afghan Girl, Steve McCurry continues to fascinate with his stunning photographs of locations from around the globe.

This exhibition will highlight images taken throughout his decades-long relationship with Afghanistan, its landscape and, most importantly, its people. Visitors will be able to view both new and familiar photographs and experience Afghanistan through McCurry’s thought-provoking and visually arresting lens.

Born in Philadelphia and raised in Newtown Square, McCurry currently keeps studios in both New York City and Exton, PA.

Unguarded, Untold, Iconic: Afghanistan through the Lens of Steve McCurry is generously supported by Jon Paton.
