52.____Steve McCurry

Last Wednesday The Boyfriend and I made a jaunt to Birmingham, intentionally to get my little brother some Krispie Kreme donuts for his 14th birthday, and as we were there, thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and see an exhibition that I'd read about.

Steve McCurry is an amazing photographer, he's been taking photos for 3 decades in some really amazing places, his portfolio spans Cambodia, Vietnam, India, Africa and Afghanistan.

His photos are moving, haunting but most of all honest, they simply tell the truth. No picture he takes is staged, which is part of the most captivating thing.

The exhibition is called Retrospective Exhibition at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery until 17th October, it's the only one in England for a while, and is definitely worth going to.
