Alida Solutions provided consecutive interpretation for a prominent American photographer Steve McCurry, the author of the internationally acclaimed photo "The Afghan Girl" on the eve of McCurry's solo exhibition at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art lasting from 4 July until 2 September 2018.
Our team became an integral part of an engaging on-air interview with Steve who shared his thoughts about modern photography, people he had collaborated with, and his long-awaited Moscow exhibition with Lev Gankin and Anna Titova for "Leo Constellation" live on Silver Rain.
Steve McCurry is an American photographer, freelancer and photojournalist. His most famous photo is "The Afghan Girl", depicting a girl with piercing green eyes that from time to time appears on the cover of National Geographic. McCurry has photographed many assignments for National Geographic and has been a member of Magnum since 1986. Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than 30 years. Speaking about himself, he avoids such definitions as «photojournalist» or «reporter» and prefers to call himself an «observer» or «storyteller». Steve's body of work spans conflicts, vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture alike - yet always retains the human element. His works do not need analysis or additional interpretation, since McCurry endeavours to capture the state of a person here and now and to establish a dialogue between the subject of a photograph and the viewer.
