Exhibition view: Large-format, color-intensive photographs floating on different levels through the vast interior of the Semper Depot in Vienna

From July 7 to September 24, 2023, a unique exhibition of works by photographer Steve McCurry will be on display at Semperdepot, the Atelierhaus at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
This show presents large-format and backlit images (between 2x3m and 4x6m) floating on several levels of the architecturally impressive Semperdepot. The visitors of the exhibtion are taken on a condensed journey around the world as if in a kaleidoscope of colors.

Steve McCurry is not only a great nature photographer, but also a specialist in expressive portraits of people. His images have become contemporary icons via magazines and the web. In the midst of a fantastically beautiful - but sometimes also nightmarishly horrific - backdrop, men, women, and children are placed in the center, their gaze never letting go of the viewer:inside. McCurry takes great care not to stage anything. Rather, he condenses his impressions, the colors, the landscape, but also the fate of the portrayed in a picture.

McCurry's most famous picture is "Afghan Girl," taken in a refugee camp in Pakistan. The portrait of Sharbat Gula was featured on the cover of the 1985 cover of National Geographic in 1985 and has since been widely used by Amnesty International and others. It is the most frequently published photograph of a private person in the world. McCurry has been a Magnum photographer since 1986, which for him also means paying attention to the authenticity of the images and the dignity of the people.
