5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I could give it six stars
I have many of Steve McCurry's photograph books and have also given them as gifts. To find that through this book he shared the stories behind the photographs, well, it made for a wonderful afternoon of photo viewing. And, as an aside, through an interview on television, he stated that he, due to an accident, could only use one arm to shoot these astonishing photos,...

3.0 out of 5 stars While the photographs are amazing, there is far too much space give over ...
This is a missed opportunity - there is not nearly enough here on McCurry's approach to photography. While some of the stories are compelling, the stories are second-hand, not written by Steve, and they often feel distant. While the photographs are amazing, there is far too much space give over to copies of his travel documents - page after page of these. What a waste...

I have many of Steve McCurry's photograph books and have also given them as gifts. To find that through this book he shared the stories behind the photographs, well, it made for a wonderful afternoon of photo viewing. And, as an aside, through an interview on television, he stated that he, due to an accident, could only use one arm to shoot these astonishing photos, made his accomplishments even more special. Highly, highly recommended!!

This review is from: Untold: The Stories Behind the Photographs (Hardcover)
I have many of Mr. McCurry's photo books. Adding a lot of back stories to his amazing photography immensely enhanced this book. I highly recommend this book to everyone. This is a book that I started reading and then couldn't put down; both for the narrative and the always amazing photography.

This review is from: Untold: The Stories Behind the Photographs (Hardcover)
This book has many of his iconic photos plus the stories behind them. The print quality is excellent, probably as good as the prints in his Iconic book and they are large prints. You will spend many hours to finish it. This book is a bargain!

It was a birthday present for my sister and she loved it! :) She loved photography and admires Steve McCurry a lot. (I can't say much myself, because I'm not that interested in photography.)

Steve McCurry's images have stuck with me for years.
I loved reading the back story of when they were taken. It
is not easy enduring the conditions Steve did to bring us
those wonderful photographs.
