This souvenir is sold on the occasion of Asia Society Hong Kong Center's exhibition, Picturing Asia: Double Take-The Photography of Brian Brake and Steve McCurry, from September 10, 2016 to January 7, 2017, the exhibition sheds light on Brake and McCurry's common passion in capturing many facets of Asia.In 1961, when an 11-year-old McCurry saw Brake’s celebrated photo essay of the Indian monsoon, a flame was kindled which eventually compelled him to document the same enigmatic climatic phenomenon twenty years later. Their monsoon photographs form a dialogue from which this exhibition starts.
