This book shows the life's work of one of the most brilliant photojournalists of out time, who raised the status of his craft to that of high art. In his bestselling autobiography, 'Unreasonable behaviour', Don McCullin told the extraordinary and sometimes harrowing story of how he grew up in north London's gangland and graduated from poverty to stardom as the most daring and self-sacrificing reporter of wars around the world- from Cyprus to Israel, the Congo and Biafra to Vietnam, Pakistan to Cambodia, Beirut to Iraq.
But his interests go far beyond the battleground in all its degradation which he has captured so brilliantly. In this book he has collected some 200 of what he considers to be his best pictures. A few have become well-known icons, many have not been seen in a book before. they depict unemployed miners collecting coal from the beach at dawn, down-and-outs in the East End, the homeless in Bradford, but they also reveal a passion for landscape, especially in the mysterious light of India, and a moving contact between human beings in a harsh environment.
