Steve McCurry. Animals


Animal Magnetism

Steve McCurry turns his lens on creatures around the world

In Animals, we discover a different side to the famed photographer who skillfully explores animals’ complex relationship with humans and the environment.

Tenderness abounds, particularly in scenes of unkempt street dogs sleeping contentedly next to a human. But there’s also a kind of essential solitude, with animals belonging to no one and simply wandering through life with only their survival instincts to guide them. We witness camels caught in the crossfire during the first Gulf War; a shepherd from Northern Pakistan tenderly feeding his goats; Beverly Hills designer dogs; race horses on a Hong Kong rooftop; elephants in Thailand, and more images selected by McCurry from his vast archives.

Through McCurry’s lens, we discover an appreciation for each creature’s beauty and silent dignity. This kaleidoscopic collection is at once a beautiful travelogue and a touching tribute to the creatures who share our planet.

Also available in two signed and limited Art Editions, each with a signed print.

More than adorable

Ivan,November 4, 2021
Steve McCurry is a master travel photographer who has amassed a huge catalog of beautiful and moving work. Like his tribute to Kertezs' "On Reading" this book is bound together by the theme of animals and people's friendship with them. The latter is central to the emotional strength of this book as in a lot of the photo the humans are equal to the animals. Truly one of the most beautiful McCurry books and also very funny on moments.

This book speaks about intimacy, equality, strong bonds between difference species. Multilanguage trip about the beauty to scream all over the world: "i'm not alone!, not with you, my pet."

Gorgeous book
