Needless to say, i was flabbergasted and supremely excited to learn that Steve McCurry would be exhibiting at one of the Museums we have here in tiny Singapore. On display would be iconic photographs such as the Afghan Girl at his first solo exhibition here, amongst others.
I was dumbstruck, (starstruck rather), when i saw Mr McCurry strolling into the foyer (followed by his assistant and accompanying photographer that seemed to be photographing him and his work together).
I was lucky enough to have my Zeiss Ikon with me and managed to snap a few shots of the man himself!
These were all that i managed. The lighting was rather dim and my film speed too slow. (provia 100). Well, at least i saw him in the flesh! He seemed friendly enough, waving and smiling to people at the show. At times he seemed almost shy even.
Oh, and the photographs were stunning.
