Epic Train Photography by Steve McCurry


Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic photographers in contemporary photography for more than 30 years, best known for his fascinating image of an Afghani girl with striking eyes.  During the eighties he spent time in India photographing train stations, creating a visual narrative of day to day activities . As McCurry says, “When the train pulls into the station there is a mad dash of humanity. People push through the doors and climb through windows to capture an elusive seat to avoid the punishment of standing for an entire trip.”
