Don McCullin by Simon, Shoair, Aicha Baker, Mavlian, Mehrez
Accompanying an exhibition at Tate Liverpool of iconic British photographer, Don McCullin (b.1935), this exquisitely produced book includes his work from the mid-1950s to the present. Highlighting all areas of McCullin's output, it reflects his long career as a conflict photographer, social documentary practice, travel assignments and his more recent engagement with landscape. This new edition to accompany Tate Liverpool's exhibition features newly-printed images of Liverpool and the North of England taken in the 1960s and 70s. A native Londoner, McCullin began to take photographs in the 1950s documenting his surroundings and local community, including the gangs in his neighbourhood. In 1958 his photograph The Guvnors - a portrait of a notorious Finsbury Park gang who were involved in the murder of a police officer - was published in the Observer, launching his career as a photojournalist. He went on to become one of the best-known war correspondents in the country.
