Sobre este título:
?The monks, travellers, children, pilgrims and parents pictured here engage both the eye and emotion, and leave a lingering sense of the universality of feelings beneath the varied traditional garb displayed so sumptuously here.?
?further evidence of McCurry?s standing as one of the finest photojournalists of his generation.?
?an almost anthropological subsection of humanity, an extraordinarily beautiful historical document for future times.?
?nothing short of outstanding. ? wonderful images. Every one is worth lingering over and the generous presentation ? one picture per spread ? really gives each image the breathing space it deserves. Just buy a copy and look into the eyes of every portrait ? we guarantee you?ll be moved.?
'Steve McCurry's lushly poignant shots of the people and places of Asia have yielded some of the best know photographic icons of our time ... his images often dance on a knife-edge between sensuality and tragedy, sentiment and anguish.'
'evocative ... documents [McCurry's] journey to capture the essence and soul of a country through its people and landscape.'
