Steve McCurry – Animals – Art Editions

Steve McCurry - Animals - 2 Art Editions - 2019

Steve McCurry - Animals - 2 Art Editions - 2019In 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 their human companions. 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 many more images selected by McCurry from his vast archives.

Steve McCurry - Art Edition 2 - Chennai, India, 1996 - 2019“Rats are worshipped at the rat temple of Rajasthan (called Karni Mata) that I photographed years ago.
