I recently had the pleasure of spending the day at the Open Shutter Gallery here in Durango, Colorado. Opening his own show and giving a photography lecture was Magnum photographer Steve McCurry of National Geographic fame.

Covering topics from Afghanistan* to the fall of the World Trade Center on 911, Steve’s work spans decades photographing assignments across the globe for the Geographic, with a focus on South Asia.
