10 Stunning Images of India shot by Steve McCurry

Best known for his iconic photograph of the ‘Afghan Girl’ in 1984, Steve McCurry’s photographs captured in India is a testament to his long-standing love for the country. He captures photographs across the Indian landscape – from Kashmir to Kerala and everything in between capturing vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture. Even though Steve McCurry has an extensive archive of stunning photographs, this blog is a quick walk down his memory lane which begins from the Porbandar floods in Gujarat in 1983.
