A new documentary about the life and work of photographer Don McCullin in new film festival venue, Queen’s Park Camera Club, the oldest photographic club in Glasgow.
Celebrated photographer Don McCullin worked for The Sunday Times from 1966 to 1983, at a time when the newspaper was widely recognised as being at the cutting edge of international investigative photo-journalism. During that period he covered wars and humanitarian disasters on virtually every continent: from civil war in Cyprus, the war in Vietnam and the man-made famine in Biafra to the plight of the homeless in swinging sixties London.
The film includes a rich archive of McCullin’s work, an in-depth interview with McCullin as well as input from ex-colleagues, his former editor at the Sunday Times calls him a ‘conscience with a camera’.
