TATE BRITAIN PRESENTS A RETROSPECTIVE OF ICONIC WAR PHOTOGRAPHER DON MCCULLIN

TATE BRITAINEXHIBITION

 

From harrowing images of conflict to scenes of poverty-stricken London, this exhibition showcases some of the most impactful photographs captured over the last 60 years by the iconic war photographer DON MCCULLIN.  The exhibition is now open at Tate Britain until 6 May 2019. 

 

Sir Don McCullin was born in 1935 and grew up in a deprived area of north London. He got his first break when a newspaper published his photograph of friends who were in a local gang. From the 1960s he forged a career as probably the UK’s foremost war photographer, primarily working for the Sunday Times Magazine. His unforgettable and sometimes harrowing images are accompanied in the show with his brutally honest commentaries. With over 250 photographs, all printed by McCullin himself in his own darkroom, this exhibition will be a unique opportunity to appreciate the scope and achievements of his entire career.  >>> www.tate.org.uk/
