The most iconic images of the modern world, captured at the perfect moment when light, time, place and person are exactly at the point that offers extraordinary photography. This is how photographer Steve McCurry, who tirelessly travels through the remotest corners of the world – and this is not an ounce of exaggeration – works to document the brightest and darkest sides of humanity. McCurry has an extraordinary ability, even if it is a curse, to be at the heart of the hottest events. In addition to his professional achievements, the film also deals with the personal challenges McCurry faced in his life.
