Born 1935, London, United Kingdom. Lives and works in Somerset, United Kingdom.
Born in Finsbury Park, London, Don McCullin left school at the age of fifteen and completed his National Service in the RAF as a photographic assistant. In 1958, McCullin’s photograph of The Guvnors, a London gang, appeared in The Observer and led to him securing a contract there. Between 1966 and 1984, McCullin worked for The Sunday Times Magazine at the cutting edge of investigative, critical journalism. During this period his assignments included Vietnam, Biafra, Northern Ireland, and the Lebanese civil war. McCullin has received numerous awards and is the author of more than a dozen books. His work is held in museum collections around the world. Although McCullin continues to travel and work internationally, many of his most recent images are of the British landscape, notably Somerset, where he now lives with his family.
