Special Exhibitions Gallery, 6 February to 13 June 2010. FREE ENTRY
Imperial War Museum North presents the largest ever UK exhibition about the life and work of Don McCullin, one of the world’s most acclaimed photographers, to mark his 75th year. Many items are on public display for the very first time.
For more than 50 years, McCullin’s images have shaped our awareness of modern conflict and its consequences. His courage and integrity, as well as the exceptional quality of his work, are a continuing inspiration and influence worldwide.
A unique collaboration between McCullin and the Imperial War Museum, this major new exhibition contains over 200 photographs, objects, magazines and personal memorabilia, and shows how war has shaped the life of this exceptional British photographer and those across the globe over the last half-century.
A major new book published by Jonathan Cape: Don McCullin: Shaped by War accompanies the exhibition.
Further exhibitions of Shaped by War: Photographs by Don McCullin are planned at:
* Victoria Art Gallery, Bath, 11 September - 21 November 2010
* Imperial War Museum London, 7 October 2011 - 30 January 2012http://north.iwm.org.uk/server/show/nav.24321
