Fancying this!

There is to be an exhibition of Don McCullin's photographs at the Imperial War Museum North (Opposite The Lowry at Salford Quays, Manchester). McCullin documented some of the major conflicts, famines and disasters over 50 years; the building of the Berlin Wall, Vietnam, the Six Day war, Northern Ireland in the 70s, Bangladesh and the Falklands. Some of his images are iconic, even though many people won't know who took the shot. He's also taken some defining photographs of England particularly the parts we might wish not to see. Look at these images of poverty in this country in the 1970s. I'm certainly going to try to get to this one.
