Steve McCurry at The Shanghai Centre of Photography
Double Take: Brian Brake \ Steve McCurry sheds light on Brake and McCurry’s common passion in capturing the many facets of Asia. In 1961, when an 11-year-old McCurry saw Brake’s celebrated photo essay of the Indian monsoon, a flame was kindled which eventually compelled him to document the same enigmatic climatic phenomenon twenty years later. Their monsoon photographs form a dialogue from which this exhibition starts. Showcasing over 90 works, the exhibition traces Brake and McCurry’s efforts in giving the West glimpses of the East – of China, Japan, India, and beyond.
Double Take: Brian Brake \ Steve McCurry runs from 17 June – 9 September 2018 at The Shanghai Centre of Photography.
