Steve McCurry catapulted to fame with his iconic photo of the “Afghan Girl” — the young, Peshawari refugee, which first appeared on the cover of National Geographic in 1985. He has achieved unparalleled excellence in photographic journalism, in a career that has spanned decades and crossed borders of some of the most war-torn regions on earth.

Throughout his career, Steve McCurry has documented the consequences of war on humankind, capturing those startling moments in images forever frozen in time.

Join us as we honor Steve McCurry, a native Philadelphian, as our 127th Explorer of the Year. As such, he joins the ranks of Theodore Roosevelt, Jacques Cousteau, and Robert E. Peary. The Geographical Society of Philadelphia honors McCurry for capturing history’s most captivating moments on camera.
