Now here is a wild one, is it possible to be inspired by something you have never seen? Only to realise your inspiration after your own creation has become.

I ask this because I have recently been looking further into Steve mccurry’s work, I first saw work by mccurry at the end of my india adventures in a small bookshop in the back streets of rajistan. His book stood out to me as his style of work was similar to what I was creating at the time. I’m not saying by any account that my images are at the standard of his in the books but but when looking through images on his blog (without trying to sound too big headed) I believe that with further trips I could reach his high standard.

The images mccurry captures honestly show the soul of the people within them, I can only think this is down to his social skills in these situations, making the subjects relaxed enough to show their selves to the camera
