For more than 50 years, his uncompromising black and white photographs have shaped our awareness and understanding of modern conflict and its consequences.Shaped by War presents the largest collection of Don McCullin's work ever seen on public display.His photographs are accompanied by a newly commissioned film interview, magazine spreads and personal memorabilia. Together, they tell the remarkable story of his life and work, including his most famous assignments in Berlin, Vietnam, Cambodia, Biafra, Bangladesh and the Middle East.Key periods in McCullin's life including his early experiences of evacuation and the Blitz, his commissions from Berlin in 1961 and Cyprus in 1964 and his most famous work for the Sunday Times are explored alongside more recent projects with Christian Aid and, in the last few years, his photographs of still life and English landscapes at his home in Somerset.
