MONTREAL.- Galerie Got Montréal hosts the first Canadian exhibition featuring the work of internationally-renowned American photographer Steve McCurry, member of the Magnum Agency.

On view from May 27 to June 30, 2016, this exhibition-sale features over fifteen photographs from the award-winning photographer, and marks the official opening of Galerie Got Montréal, located at 50 Saint-Paul Street West, in Old Montréal.

From the young Afghan Girl, who graced the cover of National Geographic, to the famous photograph of the steam locomotive in front of the Taj Mahal, the public will discover the brilliance of the photographer’s mythical work. Galerie Got Montréal is the only official representative of Steve McCurry in Canada.

Steve McCurry, recognized universally as one of today’s finest image-makers, has won many of photography’s top awards. Best known for his evocative color photography, McCurry, in the finest documentary tradition, captures the essence of human struggle and joy. Member of Magnum Photos since 1986, McCurry has searched and found the unforgettable; many of his images have become modern icons. Steve McCurry has covered many areas of international and civil conflict, including thirty years of coverage of Afghanistan. A high point in his career was the rediscovery of the previously unidentified Afghan refugee girl that many have described as the most recognizable photograph in the world today. When McCurry finally located Sharbat Gula after almost two decades, he said, “Her skin is weathered; there are wrinkles now, but she is a striking as she was all those years ago.” McCurry returned from an extended assignment in China on September 10, 2001.
