Shaped by war

Posted by

An interesting couple of articles on The Guardian site about Don McCullin, the veteran photographer. He’s mostly dubbed a ‘war photographer’, though in the interview he says he doesn’t like that label, as it’s reductive. Many of his most famous images though, are from his numerous excursions during the Vietnam war. A new film is also released on the photographer, simply called, McCullin.
