Steve McCurry Joins SanDisk Extreme Team Legends

Steve McCurry has been inducted into the SanDisk Extreme Team Legends programme. This programme honours photographers who have made major contributions to the art of photography during their careers. McCurry was inducted into the programme during National Geographic’s 125th anniversary event in Øksnehallen, Copenhagen. At the event, more than 110 photographs taken by some of National Geographic’s most prestigious photographers were featured. Most notably, McCurry’s “Afghan Girl” image, which appeared on the magazine’s cover in 1985, and has since become one of the most recognised magazine covers of all time.

SANDISK INDUCTS STEVE MCCURRY INTO THE SANDISK EXTREME TEAM LEGENDS PROGRAM

London, UK – SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a global leader in flash memory storage solutions, has announced Steve McCurry, the renowned photographer of the iconic “Afghan Girl” image, has been inducted into the SanDisk Extreme Team Legends program.

McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than 30 years, with scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name.

SanDisk created the SanDisk Extreme Team Legends program to honor photographers who have made major contributions to the art of photography during their careers. McCurry was inducted into the program during National Geographic’s 125th anniversary event in Øksnehallen, Copenhagen. At the event, more than 110 photographs taken by some of National Geographic’s most prestigious photographers were featured. Most notably, McCurry’s “Afghan Girl” image, which appeared on the magazine’s cover in 1985, and has since become one of the most recognised magazine covers of all time.

“Members of the SanDisk Extreme Team Legends are photographers chosen to be a part of the program based on their years of dedication to photography,” said Brian Pridgeon, director, retail product marketing, SanDisk. “We are proud to include Steve McCurry among the other SanDisk Extreme Team Legends, who are all premier photographers in their respective genres.”

McCurry is the third inductee into the program since its inception, along with fellow distinguished photographers Walter Iooss and Akito Mizutani. The selection of a SanDisk Extreme Team Legends member is based on a lifetime of significant contributions to the photography industry, and SanDisk acknowledges these members for their devotion to the art.

SanDisk also kicked off a social media contest to select a new SanDisk Extreme Team member, and McCurry will be part of an exclusive panel of judges who will determine the winner. The contest started yesterday (22nd July, 2013) on SanDisk’s Facebook page. The winner will be announced at the PhotoPlus International Conference and Expo in New York, NY on Oct. 24, 2013.
