McCurry is best remembered for his photo of an Afghan girl he shot in 1985 and became the cover of National Geographic. It is an iconic and memorable image. He continues to photograph in Asia and in conflict zones. He is also famed for shooting the last roll of production Kodachrome slide film which was processed this summer.
Check out his images. He is one of my photographic heroes, and so a chance to hear him live will be much anticipated.
