For those who don’t know his work, Don McCullin has been one of the preeminent war photographers of the last half century. While his work has moved away from the dark days of conflict, his newer work is still stunningly good.
As a tease, here’s a three minute interview with him done by Alfred Dunhill …
This next piece is what my friend Greg Mironchuk calls a piece of crass commercialism, but it’s fascinating – McCullin is shown experiencing a digital camera for the first time. Be aware that it’s a Canon camera and this was posted by Canon Europe, so he leans towards loving it.
But there are moments of great insight into who he is, the work he has done and how it has affected him.
One must not think about doing things in life, one must do them.
