Photographer Steve McCurry, famous for shooting "The Afghan Girl" and this year's world-renowned Pirelli Calendar, has never tired from taking pictures, "I get energized from working," he says with boyish enthusiasm.

Having traveled through war zones to holy lands of wisdom seekers, his myriad experiences only reveal to him more of our similarities as a human race: "Whether you're Muslim, Christian, or Hindu, down deep it's all pretty much the same."

In the 21st episode of "SRO Conversations," Steve talks about his life as an itinerant photographer, including his journey capturing the photo of the "Afghan Girl" and finding her once again.

A must watch for all photographers and travelers.
