Steve McCurry's photographs in In the Shadow of Mountains eloquently illustrate a country of contradictions, where the contemporary battles with the ancient and the spiritual clashes with the secular.
Striking portraits of men and women, are presented alongside timeless images of children at play and shepherds tending their flocks and ancient sandstone cities are contrasted with shanty-towns constructed from tattered tarpaulins. The famous mountainous landscapes and ancient temples are shown together with scenes of daily life, such as a bread seller at his kiosk or traders at a market.
McCurry's unique ability to cross boundaries of language and culture to capture stories of human experience is fully exhibited in this remarkable new collection of images.
