Steve McCurry amazes me.

A friend just sent me a link to this Steve McCurry photograph of students in Bamiyan, Afghanistan.

Look at that child, how can a photographer be so close but go so unnoticed? There is an endless amount of jaw dropping photographs by Steve on his site, I could look for hours.

Some of my Steve McCurry favourites are below, sleep, 'balm of hurt minds' - William Shakespeare.

Steve McCurry, Afghanistan, 2002.

Steve McCurry, Tibet, 2001.

Steve McCurry, Kabul, Afghanistan, 1992.

Steve McCurry, India, 2001.

Steve McCurry, USA, 1991.
