Steve McCurry: India at The Rubin Museum of Art, November 18, 2015 – April 4, 2016

“As a photographer I am sustained by the rhythms of everyday life: the routines of herding and fishing; the chanting of prayers and the hawking of wares. Where do humans sleep? How do we feed ourselves? How do we keep warm? For me documenting the infinitely varied ways we meet these fundamental human needs has proven to be a profound journey.” — Steve McCurry
