McCurry shot the famous photograph “Afghan Girl” (whose name he later found out to be Sharbat Gula) which was published on the cover of National Geographic Magazine in June 1985. The photo was deemed “most recognized photograph” in the history of National Geographic.

The exhibit (which drew more than 120,000 visitors while in Milan) will include a collection of McCurry’s work, photographs taken in Afghanistan, India, Tibet and Burma. It will be on display in Perugia through September 5, 2010.
