Don McCullin

Don McCullin is a well known Documentary photographer best known for his iconic war photographs. McCullin grew up in Finsbury Park London an area known for its violence at the time, this is where he learned his trade, his first publication was for the observer in 1959 from there he was posted all over the world to capture images for newspapers such as The Sunday Times and The Independent. Some of McCullin’s best work comes from his none war projects, his coverage of the conflict and resulting famine in Biafra is a good example of how his photos can generate emotion with in the viewer. The shocking nature of the images below helped to generate a relief effort after they were published for the public to see. I am personally a huge fan of McCullin’s work and consider him one of my favourite photographers, I love the way the shocking nature of his photographs is combined with his technical ability to make the pictures a form of art.
