From the war zones of Vietnam and Syria to the meditative landscapes of Somerset, Tate Britain presents over 250 images captured and printed by legendary British photographer Don McCullin.

Dates and Times: Tue 05 Feb - Mon 06 May 2019, 10:00 - 18:00.

This exhibition includes many of his iconic war photographs – including images from Vietnam, Northern Ireland and more recently Syria, often captured at great personal risk. But it also focuses on the work he did at home in the UK, recording scenes of poverty and working class life in London’s East End and the industrial north, as well as meditative landscapes of his beloved Somerset, where he lives.

Sir Don McCullin was born in 1935 and grew up in a deprived area of north London. He got his first break when a newspaper published his photograph of friends who were in a local gang. From the 1960s he forged a career as probably the UK’s foremost war photographer, primarily working for the Sunday Times Magazine. His unforgettable and sometimes harrowing images are accompanied in the show with his brutally honest commentaries.
