A London exhibition will be celebrating Steve McCurry's photos of Afghanistan people. Particularly, the relationship he has with the Afghanistan people, culture and landscape is breathtaking. The photos are striking and there is something truly hauntingly beautiful about these captures.

You probably remember photojournalist Scott McCurry's work with Afghanistan people from his National Geographic striking image of an Afghan girl. Even though the images are beautiful, there is something about them that still reads heartache, turmoil and despair. Personally, I feel like this gives each image so much emotion.

The backdrops are exquisite and you start to feel many emotions while looking through these images. It changes from image to image but there is no question on whether it will leave an impact with you or not.
