Don McCullin
British, b. 1935
Follow

Photojournalist Don McCullin is recognized internationally for his iconic and unflinching images of war zones in Indochina, Latin America, the Middle East, and particularly Vietnam. Predominantly self-taught, McCullin came to prominence in 1958 when a newspaper bought his images of a London gang involved in the murder of a policeman, and later received international acclaim for his photographs of the Berlin wall. After seeing his work, photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson once said to him: “I have one word to say to you: Goya,” referencing the painter famous for his depictions of war and violence. McCullin also produced classic images of the Beatles in the 1960s and, more recently, ruins on the frontiers of the Roman Empire.
