Powerful photographs

 

War Photography by ace photographer Donald McCullin is revealed by Jacqui and David Morris film, “McCullin”. Worth watching (popped up one time on the BBC “Imagine” programme, may recur).

Harold Evans, editor of the Sunday time, employing Don at the time: “Still photographs do have this strong affinity with the way we remember, so the vibrations of a still photograph can be intense and can last forever….”

But is it truth?

Don “Photography IS the truth – if it’s being handled by a truthful person.”

The photos and stories are quietly harrowing.  Don McCullin is haunted by what he has seen and the knowledge that apparently his images did not prevent similar suffering from being perpetrated over and over again.

NB The executive producer on this film is “Rankin”.
