A large exhibit of the photographs of Don McCullin—including his acclaimed work in the Vietnam War—opened February 5 at the Tate Britain gallery in London. It runs through May 6.
“This exhibition showcases some of the most impactful photographs captured over the last 60 years,” the Tate says. “It includes many of his iconic war photographs – including images from Vietnam, Northern Ireland and more recently Syria. But it also focuses on the work he did at home in England, 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.”
McCullin, who was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 2016, was born in 1935. He went to Vietnam during the 1968 Tet Offensive and his work there includes some of the most iconic photographs of U.S. Marines and Vietnamese civilians taken during the height of the Vietnam War.
