Street Photography

I’ve had this website for a few years, posting only pictures to pages. I decided it was time to start blogging about photography.

I’ve bounced around quite a bit in trying to decide what type of photography I want to do. 140 more words

Afghan Girl

視覺系講古佬  Steve McCurry

KASHMIR-10069, Kashmir, 1998

走過烽火大地、硝煙戰場,拍攝過無數震懾人心的畫面,許多人都把Steve McCurry歸類為紀實攝影師。喜歡人文攝影的他,三十多年前以一幅《阿富汗少女》(Afghan Girl)為世人所認識,不過近年卻履被踢爆作品過度PS,有失紀實攝影之稱。66歲的他表示,自己早不是攝影記者,而是一個Visual Storyteller,一名視覺系的講古佬。早兩年他來港出席展覽,再度說起自己的名作。

1979年12月,前蘇聯出兵入侵阿富汗,導致當地人顛沛流離,許多家庭越過邊界逃往巴基斯坦,在邊界地帶搭起了難民營。修讀戲劇的Steve McCurry,畢業後曾在報館做過兩年攝影記者,1978年正式展開自由攝影生涯,不久就來到了戰事爆發前的阿富汗,憑著過人的勇氣拍攝了許多珍貴照片。戰事爆發之後,他的照片受到國際媒體爭相採用,1980年更獲得象徵冒險精神的Robert Capa Gold Medal。

The Afghan girl

Afghan girl she was called
Not so in appearance
For she had the eyes of a

For Afghanistan has no leopards. 25 more words
