A new-born baby is carefully checked over at a hospital in Jaipur, a small girl grins from a bench on Rome's Piazza Navona and energetic boys jostle in front of the camera in Havana – over his long career and on his many travels Steve McCurry has taken an incredible selection of photographs of children, each one managing to hint at an epic story. Stories and Dreams brings a unique selection of these images together for the first time. With an introduction from Ziauddin Yousafzai, father of Malala, this is a colorful portrayal of the challenges, hopes and adventures of children from across the world.
In an incredibly successful career spanning over 40 years Steve McCurry has created some of the most evocative and best-known images in photography. He has been awarded the Robert Capa Gold Medal, the National Press Photographers Award, and four first prize recognitions at the World Press Photo Contest.
