Internationally renowned photographer Steve McCurry discusses documenting people across the world, including his famous photograph The Afghan Girl.
As the photographer of National Geographic magazine's best-known cover with The Afghan Girl, Steve McCurry's remarkable travels have allowed him to document people and places around the world through pictures.
He says: "I want to tell these stories of people that don't have a voice otherwise."
And he has been doing just that since he first picked up a still camera and began traveling as a teenager.
Born and raised in the US, McCurry was restless from a young age until he discovered that photography would allow him to travel and explore the world - his main ambition.
From Philadelphia to Africa and Asia, his images continue to connect people across continents through his ability to uniquely capture humanity in times of both war and peace.
