Don McCullin

From the 1960s Don McCullin 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 is a unique opportunity to appreciate the scope and achievements of his entire career.
