Picturing Asia - Photography Exhibition at Asia Society

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Join Kitty on a talk through this wonderful photography exhibition of the work of Steve McCurry and Brian Brake.

    Excerpt from the Asia Society web site:
    Picturing Asia: Double Take sheds light on Brake and McCurry’s common passion in capturing the many facets of Asia. In 1961, when an 11-year-old McCurry saw Brake’s celebrated photo essay of the Indian monsoon, a flame was kindled which eventually compelled him to document the same enigmatic climatic phenomenon twenty years later. Their monsoon photographs form a dialogue from which this exhibition starts. Showcasing over 90 works, the exhibition traces Brake and McCurry’s efforts in giving the West glimpses of the East – of China, Japan, India, and beyond. “Picturing” in the title proposes a double meaning – of taking a picture, and of imagining one.

    Having seen it already I can assure you that these photographs are not to be missed. They are those one in a million photographs of people that you think 'gosh, wasn't he lucky to get that shot' and they are all like that! Breathtaking.

    We will meet in the entrance lobby. Tickets are $30 each.

    Join us for tea afterwards - location to be announced.
