Recently, there was a documentary on Steve McCurry’s last roll of Kodachrome done by National Geographic. But thanks to the clever pointing out of On Taking Pictures, we now have a view of nearly ever single photo that Steve shot on the last roll. When you really get down to it, you start to not only see a culmination of all that he’s shot, but you get to study his mentality a bit more. For example, Robert DeNiro is the only celebrity to grace the roll twice. But then you get into the Bollywood stars and lots of the special people in India that Steve loved to photograph. A lot of these photos are posed portraits using lots of soft lighting that also seem very natural.
Keep going through the images though, and you’ll see a return to Steve’s documentary and street photography work. They’re quite nice and McCurry is an inspiration to nearly anyone out there.
