About Don McCullin
Sir Don McCullin CBE is one of the most important photographers of the late twentieth century. In 2017, he was knighted in the New Year Honours for his lifetime services to photography and in 1993 was the first photojournalist to be honoured with a CBE for his sustained and significant contribution. In 1977, he was made a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, followed by the Royal Photographic Society’s Special 150th Anniversary Medal and Honorary Fellowship (HonFRPS) in 2003. Between 1966 and 1984, he worked for The Sunday Times Magazine under Editor-in-Chief Harold Evans and Art Editor David King. It was during this time he released his most celebrated images.
