"South Southeast" is a portfolio of the best of Steve McCurry's photography - magical and powerful images from South and Southeast Asia. McCurry photographs all over the world, but it is the people, places, colors and forms of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Tibet, Thailand, Cambodia, and Burma that have inspired his most striking work - images which transcend their editorial origins to become classics of photography. Of his work, McCurry says, "Above all, I feed on the colors of Asia: deep henna, hammered gold, curry and saffron, rich black lacquer and painted-over rot. As I reflect back on it, I see it was the vibrant color of Asia that taught me to see and write in light." With anecdotes and personal notes on his journeys and photographs, "South Southeast" is dramatic and epic color monograph of Steve McCurry's finest work.
