Steve McCurry's India

This month, the Rubin Museum of Art will display a selection of images from Steve McCurry’s travels to India over the last three decades. The photographs of the people, monuments, and landscapes of India, some of which have never before been published, are all endowed with McCurry’s trademark bursts of color. The Magnum photographer’s exhibit also corresponds to the release of his new book, India, which features 150 images of subcontinent. “No matter how much the country is changing,” he told Time, “there’s something about India that makes you feel like you’re stepping back into another time and age.” [12 photos total]
