The Digital Journalist
South Southeast - Steve McCurry
Photograph by Steve McCurry
"Photographing in heavy rain is just about as difficult as it gets. You continually have to wipe away rain drops from the camera lens. This takes at least a third of your time. Monsoon rain is accompanied by strong winds which continually try to wrestle away the umbrella that is tightly wedged between head and shoulders. Changing film is not only a high-risk proposition, but a high-stakes contest with few winners. Throughout my year-long coverage of the monsoon world, my strong conviction was that I was involved in the fundamentals of life."
