    Rather than trying to copy/imitate McCurry's style, its a good reminder for us to stay curious, open-minded and to work with subjects when possible

    Thanks for sharing

    It is pointless to copy as Ed says... one can copy the image but what is lacking is the voice... that differentiate one photographer to another. Looks the same superficially, but a mile of different when it comes to finer details.

    Just appreciate, not copy. You can't copy the style and no point. But he went out and the chances for memorable shots just happened.

    Watched the TV documentary on him. He photographed the Afghan girl with the green eyes using a Nikon F100 and film. He happened to come across her, took some shots and she was gone in a moment. Not a paid model shoot.

    There is a Malaysian fast food chain by that McCurry name. McDonald's sued it but the court ruled in favour of McCurry.

    No idea why McDonald's think they own the "Mc-............" label. The Scottish used the "Mc-............" name long before McDonald's.
