Vernissage de l'exposition "Don McCullin"


Tate Britain

du 5 février au 6 mai 2019

Tate Britain presents a comprehensive retrospective of the legendary British photographer Don McCullin

This exhibition showcases some of the most impactful photographs captured over the last 60 years. It includes many of his iconic war photographs - including images from Vietnam, Northern Ireland and more recently Syria. But it also focuses on the work he did at home in England, recording scenes of poverty and working class life in London's East End and the industrial north, as well as meditative landscapes of his beloved Somerset, where he lives.

Sir Don McCullin was born in 1935 and grew up in a deprived area of north London. He got his first break when a newspaper published his photograph of friends who were in a local gang. From the 1960s he 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 will be a unique opportunity to appreciate the scope and achievements of his entire career.
