  2. Ich finde McCurry großartig:
    “Es braucht Poesie, um Elend zu vermitteln”


    • Und die Behutsamkeit des Auges, nehme ich an. Auch eine Zurückhaltung, vermute ich. Manche Bilder wirken so, als hätte er sie in einem Studio aufgenommen, obwohl die Personen wohl Zufallsobjekte seiner Kunst sind.

      Liebe Grüße
