Stern Photography Nr. 68 presents Steve McCurry and launches the new ‘Talent’ booklet series with young photographer Kitra Cahana

US American Steve McCurry is the silent magician of international war and documentary photography. The green eyes of an Afghan refugee girl in a camp near Peschawar in 1984 have become embedded in the international photographic memory thanks to his photograph.

The new edition of Stern Photography Nr. 68 presents a colourful and powerful, as well as moving cross section of his work and introduces his own personal discovery: the latest edition includes the first ever supplement booklet ‘Stern Photography Talent 01’ featuring young photographer Kitra Cahana.

Steve comments on US American Kitra Cahana (*1987) ‘she works in the grand tradition of documentary photography and has discovered her own style by doing so’. Her image of the withdrawal from the Israeli Gaza Strip was printed on the cover of the New York Times – when she was just 17 years of age. In 2007 she was already working for the popular US daily newspaper. Kitra had previously bagged a scholarship at Benetton’s ‘Fabrica’ communication academy, later worked for the National Graphic and studied at the Open University in Berlin.

Stern’s new booklet series sees every issue introduce a newcomer photographer, recommended and personally introduced by the top photographer of that particular issue. The newcomer will be presented in the booklet and will also receive a commission from Stern, with the chance of having their photos published in the magazine.

The new booklet series is a building block for Stern’s young photography programme, which was founded this spring and flanks the Stern scholarship for newcomer photographers, which will be accepting applicants in autumn 2012 and will begin with the first two talents in spring 2013.
The editors will then present a 12-month contract to enthusiastic applicants with a degree in Photojournalism. They are provided the opportunity of spending one full year with the Stern editor team.

This must-have double feature hit stores on the 12th of June and GoSee presents a selection of initial images.
