First published in 2001, Don McCullin’s retrospective, chronological survey offers both an examination of his career and a record of half a century of conflict around the world. Its publication coinciding with McCullin’s eightieth birthday, this expanded edition serves as an homage to a photographer who dedicated his life to the front line in a steadfast effort to deliver visual testament. This expansive publication has remained a seminal book. Since its release, however, McCullin has shed the role of war photographer and photographed widely throughout Africa, India, the Middle East, and Indonesia, as well as around his home in Somerset, UK. These new images are now included in this beautifully printed and updated edition. With text by Mark Holborn, Sir Harold Evans, and Susan Sontag, this photobook confirms McCullin’s long-established reputation as one of the greatest photographers of the last century.
Sir Don McCullin grew up in north London. He worked for the Sunday Times for eighteen years and covered every major conflict in his adult lifetime until the Falklands War. The finest British photojournalist of his generation, he has received many honours and awards including the CBE. He received a knighthood in the 2017 New Year honours list. He lives in Somerset.
