About

A display of 47 photographs by the photographer Don McCullin opened at Tate Britain. McCullin is recognised as one of the most important living war photographers. He has covered events of global importance, including the Vietnam and Biafran wars for the Observer, and other publications, since the 1960s. The substantial selection of McCullin’s work at Tate Britain was made by Tate’s curator of photography, Simon Baker, in collaboration with McCullin, and focuses on three diverse aspects of his practice: his first foreign assignment in divided Berlin in 1961; documentary work on homelessness in East London in the late 60s, and landscape works, both urban, and rural from the 1970s to the present day.

The Don McCullin display runs at Tate Britain 15 August 2011 – 8 May 2012.
