Steve McCurry – Aesthetic Hunter web essay

Stumbled upon a piece on “Magnum in Motion” website and the technical aspects that went into creating each web essay by Barbara Gibson at the Apple site.

I think mixing audio with great pics works as a web essay but once you start adding video it stutters and crashes – esp. on crappy web connections like mine. But Steve McCurry’s photos alone are worth price of admission, and his journey from US after many years as a newspaper photojournalist to vege out in India for two years, and his eventual return to journalism via the front page of the New York Times makes a compelling story.

You may remember this guy for his National Geography cover of the Afghan girl refugee whom he later searched for and re-photographed.
