Steve McCurry publishes a new book, In Search of Elsewhere, revealing previously unpublished archives. The book is a journey around the globe to discover cultures and landscapes that are at once distant, very close, and similar, all united by the hyphen of a great human sensitivity.

Preferring to look at what brings us together around the world rather than at differences, McCurry paints a moving portrait of our time. These extraordinary landscapes are inhabited by absolutely ordinary people, all of whom, no matter where they live, are engaged in the same activities and feel the same emotions.

The book is also a tribute to a world that is no longer, ravaged by wars, climate change, human action…a memory of a time gone by that pushes us to reflect on our relationship with the living and how to restore it.

In Search of Elsewhere will be released on November 24.
