A pet dog tries to escape the rising monsoon floodwaters in Porbandar, India, 1983 A dog caught in a monsoon, Porbandar, India, 1983 Located along the Arabian Sea in the western Indian state of Gujarat, Porbandar is famous as being the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi. The monsoons enter the area in July, and generally persist until September. "A wry humour underpins this bittersweet depiction of man's best friend. This situation rings true for all of us, not only for dogs. One can imagine the at the dog was barking to go outside - but once out there saw there was nowhere to go. 'It is clear that the dog's predicament is that he's trapped,' recollects McCurry. 'The street is flooded, the door is shut and his stuck on that tiny piece of concrete, waiting to be let back in. Of course, who knows what that dog is thinking...'".- Phaidon 55 With the arrival of the monsoon, this dog clearly wants to be let in. With his four paws placed squarely on a small concrete step and his head cocked towards the door, he listens intently for any movement inside that may indicate his sudden release from this perilous situation.

L’occhio attento all’umanità di Steve McCurry si posa sul mondo animale in ‘Animals’, la mostra che fino al 31 marzo inaugura Mudec Photo, il nuovo spazio espositivo del Museo delle culture di Milano.
Dagli storici servizi nel mezzo della Guerra del Golfo al volume ‘Monsoon’, tra scatti celeberrimi e foto inedite, i 60 ritratti in esposizione ritraggono il rapporto tra l’uomo e gli animali, una relazione ora affettuosa ora violenta, ora utilitaristica ora simbiotica.
“Ho notato che negli ultimi 30 anni tante mie fotografie contenevano animali, feroci o addomesticati, ritratti in ruoli e momenti diversi, più o meno condivisi con l’uomo: mi interessava vedere la correlazione – ha detto il fotografo americano presentando la mostra curata da Biba Giacchetti, oggi a Milano – Spesso questi animali si trovano in situazioni difficili, lottano con il dolore e la sofferenza, proprio come noi: questa analogia mi ha interessato”.
