MCCULLIN

British photojournalist Don McCullin escaped a hardscrabble childhood to create many of the most profound images of late-20th century wars on three continents. A pensive yet vulnerable McCullin looks back on his career with wistful, sometimes haunted memories touching on the essence of war and his ambivalence about documenting horrific events while escaping countless "close calls." McCullin's retrospection effectively augments a life's work notable for transforming moments of atrocity into a paean to shared humanity. – TM
