Most of you will most likely recognize this photo with an Afghan girl - it is a 1984 frontpage photo from National Geographic shot by the American, Steve McCurry. I was actually convinced that I did not know any more of this photos before going to see the exhibit with his photos in Øksnehallen, but I was proved wrong. I recognized several of the photos but until going to the exhibit I did not know the name of the photographer.
The Danish newspaper Politiken has a slideshow of this pictures here, and two of the photos that I like the most are among them: 1) the four nuns dressed in pink each carrying and umbrella and 2) an Indian tailor saving his most important thing, his sewing machine, through the waters caused by a monsoon.
So was started out as a must-do-something on a vacation day turned out to be a colouful trip around the world through the eyes of Steve McCurry, and hopefully I will continue it soon when I get the book with his wonderful photos. Go to his website as you will find a lot of his great photos there - a bit of a warning though: the time will pass away fast as you will get lost in his picures due to awesomeness :o)
