MoMA Presents: Jacqui and David Morris's McCullin

MoMA October 30–November 5, 2015
  • Education Center

The life of renowned British photojournalist Don McCullin is presented through contemporary interviews and archival photographs spanning his career from the late 1950s to the present. McCullin’s work covers a range of topics from around the world, including urban street gangs in London, life in the American south, and the hunger crisis in Africa, and he is widely recognized for his powerful war photographs of battlefields from Biafra and Beirut to Cambodia, Northern Ireland, and Vietnam. McCullin’s career was launched in 1959, when The Observer printed his photographs of a London street gang, and flourished at the Sunday Times Magazine, where he worked as a correspondent. The film provides a look at the stories behind the photographs, and why, after many years in the field and wide recognition for his artistry, McCullin continues to grapple with questions of conscience in recording the atrocities of war and human suffering.

Organized by Sally Berger, Assistant Curator, Department of Film.
