On Foot by Steve McCurry

Steve McCurry is one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than 30 years. He studied film before going on to work for a local newspaper. Later on, he made his first of many trips to India with a little more than bag of clothes and a camera which he used document his exploration in the country.

His photography project On Foot show different pairs of feet showing different aspects of the people. The ones with dirty, ragged and torn shoes ans slippers represent poverty, the hardships and struggles while the ones with comfortable and neat foot wears depict a comfortable life.

It was after he experienced being smuggled to Afghanistan while the Russian Invasion is at large, that he showed the world the first images of conflict in Afghanistan. Since then, McCurry has gone on to creating iconic images on countless countries focusing on cultures, conflicts and traditions but never always retaining the human element.
