Today, the Rubin Museum of Art in New York is announcing in collaboration with the International Center of Photography the display of a new exhibit that shows off images from Steve McCurry’s travels in India–with some of the images never before seen by the public. The images are curated by both ICP and the Rubin.

“The exhibition curators chose images that represent McCurry’s insightful portrayal of everyday Indian life, with a selection of portraits, landscapes, and other photographs that span his long career.” says Robin Carol, PR and Marketing Manager for the Rubin Museum.

According to Steve McCurry himself in a question posed by The Phoblographer “I had been digging in my archive for hidden gems for my upcoming book with Phaidon on India.” That also means that some of the photos may be seen in this book when it hits stores.

The exhibition is open until April 6th 2016, and is currently open for the public. A couple of photos from the exhibit are after the jump.
