Animal magnetism: Stunning Steve McCurry photos show the complex relationship between humans and animals
A touching tribute from the famous photographer to the creatures we share our planet with
Tenderness abounds, particularly in scenes of street dogs sleeping contentedly next to a human. But there’s also a kind of essential solitude, with animals belonging to no one and simply wandering through life with only their survival instincts to guide them.
Camels caught in the crossfire during the first Gulf War; a shepherd from northern Pakistan tenderly feeding his goats; Beverly Hills designer dogs; race horses on a Hong Kong rooftop; elephants in Thailand, and more from McCurry’s vast archives.
You can see his appreciation for each creature’s beauty in every image.
