Editorial Reviews

Untold spans 30 years of McCurry's career and includes fascinating ephemera from his travels: diary entries, photos of him at work, and some of the 20-plus passports he's gone through over the decades. McCurry survived the Slovenia plane crash, as well as armed robbers and bombings in Afghanistan, but what comes through in his images is wonder, rather than suffering. He manages to make the world seem enormous and quite small; exotic, and somehow familiar.-TIME LightBox
