Photographer Profile ~ Don McCullin

Donald McCullin, (born 1935, Finsbury Park, London, England) is an internationally known British photojournalist, particularly recognised for his war photography and images of urban strife. His career, which began in 1959, has specialised in examining the underside of society, and his photographs have depicted the unemployed, downtrodden and the impoverished.

In recent years, in addition to his landscape work in Britain and India, he has focused primarily on the African continent, documenting the AIDS crisis in South Africa, Botswana and Zambia, producing a book on the “lost tribes” of Ethiopia, Don McCullin in Africa (Jonathan Cape 2005), and photographing refugees from the genocide in Darfur in 2007. He was awarded the 2006 Cornell Capa Award by the International Center for Photography in New York for his lifetime contribution to photography.
