Steve McCurry is an American photojournalist with a truly outstanding career. His most well–known photograph is "Afghan Girl." Her eyes stunned the world when she first appeared in National Geographic in 1985. McCurry continues to travel the world, documenting the wars and conflicts of our fellow man, so that we don't turn a blind eye to the pain of others. The photographer also continues to capture the disparities and similarities of the human condition; the moveable feasts, the careful protection of precious children, and the stunning, sometimes painful beauty of just about everything.
As a child, photographer Tim Flach struggled with dyslexia, and so learned that he related more to the visual world than the verbal. At the age of 18, Tim went to London to pursue his arts education. He began as a painter, admiring Cezanne and Picasso. It was not until later, during his first foray into the working world that Tim delved into photography. While shooting an ad that involved a 20–foot python and a vulture, the animal handler mentioned that he was also in charge of a few big cats, and Tim thought, "Why not?"
