The Housatonic Museum of Art located on 900 Lafayette Blvd. in Bridgeport is hosting a photography show by Steve McCurry on India. The show features forty-four incredible photographs that capture the vibrant color and chaos of this ancient country, providing a stunning backdrop for the ordinary people who live and work in an extraordinary place. The show continues through February 10, 2017. All are welcome and encouraged to visit.
Best known for his iconic ‘Afghan Girl’ image that graced the cover of National Geographic over 30 years ago, McCurry stands as one of the most important voices in contemporary photography. With scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name, McCurry recently turned to India for inspiration. He says, “I was looking for street scenes, images that show the economy, recreation, and religion—pictures that address the key elements of a place and, at the same time, are interesting in their own right.”
Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Thursday evening until 7 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. (call for holiday times). The Gallery is closed Sundays.
