Steve McCurry Discusses His Work

I've long been a fan of Steve McCurry's thoughtful photojournalism, but ever since I interviewed him last year I've found myself really convinced of his genius. His work is, I think, unparalleled in the modern era. A little time spent with his books makes a strong case in support of this opinion. I recommend that readers interested in McCurry, or documentary photography in general, take a look at the video on New Media Photographer in which he speaks about his process and his pictures. He's modest enough to rebuff words like "master" and "best ever" when you're speaking to him, but he's also so adept at explaining his work and his process that the message clearly comes through. I know it does in this video, as well.
