His work was considered so powerful and evocative that in 1982 the British Government refused him a press pass to cover the Falklands War.
Don McCullin
Don McCullin, FRPS CBE (born London 9 October 1935), is an internationally-regarded photojournalist, recognised for war photography and urban strife.
His period of National Service saw him in the Canal Zone in the 1956 Suez Crisis, working as a photographer's assistant. His photojournalism career, which began in 1959, has specialised in examining the underside of British society, and his photographs have reported the unemployed, downtrodden and the impoverished.
Between 1966 and 1984, he worked as an overseas correspondent for The Sunday Times Magazine, recording ecological catastrophes and human disasters such as war-zones and victims of the African AIDS epidemic. His hard-hitting coverage of the Vietnam War and the Northern Ireland conflict is specially regarded.
In later years, he turned to landscape and still-life works and taking commissioned portraits.
