Transcript of Travel Photography
War Photography Steve McCurry was born on February 24, 1950 in Philadelphia,attended Penn State University. He originally planned to study cinematography and film making, but ended up getting a degree in theater arts and graduating cum laude in 1974. He became interested in photography when he started taking pictures for the Penn State newspaper The Daily Collegian.
He mostly focuses on the human consequences of war, not only showing what war impresses on the landscape, but rather, on the human face. He said ''Most of my images are grounded in people. I look for the unguarded moment, the essential soul peeking out, experience ethched on a person's face, i try to convey what it is like to be that person, a person caught in a borader landscape, that you could call the human condition Dario Endara (Travel)
Photography started of as a hobby for Dario and after a couple of years she became a professional photographer. Her passion for photography has taken her to more then 30 countries which has helped her collect a vast collection of images of peoople and place from around the world. Some of her work has been publieshed in serveral places such as Sport Diver Magazine, Digital Photographer Magazine etc. It was anticipated that photographers, supposedly not acting as active participants of war but as neutral partisan, would be able to bring their cumbersome photographic equipment into the battlefield and record the rapid action of combat. This was not the case, as the technical insufficiency of the photograph in recording movement was not considered. The daguerreotype, an early form of photography that generated a single image using a silver-coated copper plate, took a very long time to produce. This prevented action photography, as images took minutes to develop and could not be processed immediately. Travel photography is a subcategory of photography involving the documentation of an area's landscape, people, cultures, customs and history. The Photographic Society of America defines a travel photo as an image that expresses the feeling of a time and place, portrays a land, its people, or a culture in its natural state, and has no geographical limitations.Travel photography can either be created by professionals or amateurs. Examples of professional travel photography can be found in the National Geographic magazine.
