Shaped by War




Don McCullin covered almost every major conflict of the late 20th century. To mark his 75th birthday, the Imperial War Museum North (UK) presented an ambitious overview of his career, including many items on public display for the very first time. To accompany this exhibition, McCullin's little known colour work has been reproduced, alongside pages from the magazines and an assemblage of his personal material and documents: his cameras, boots and helmet, numerous passports and photographs of him at work on the battlefield, together with illuminating personal correspondence. McCullin has been shaped by war, there is no mistake about that. Sized to match the original Sunday Times Magazine, where so much of his work first appeared, this book is a mesmerising and moving record of conflict and battle. Not the ultimate photo book, but an unmissable read for his fans.
