E images are spot on too but for me there was ust something missing a sense of warmth a love of his subjects or craft or maybe some humour This is a large book of his subjects or craft or maybe some humour This is a large book a substantial number of photographs including several that are uite modern and dating to 2006 the Book Was Published In was published in It has a slightly unusual almost suare format at around 14 inches per side and finding a shelf to accommodate it could be a problemSeveral images are split across the double page spread but too many sides are glaring white paper which is slightly disappointing The images are about as far as they can be from McCullin s most recognised war photographs and include landscapes portraits and uite a lot of street photography Excluding the landscapes which are the most surprising inclusion and well visualised and rendered McCullin s affinity for people is well in evidenceAll the imagery is in black and white which is to be expected of McCullin and I doubt that many could have worked as well if shot in colour In many of the street scenes which are mostly located in the less wealthy parts of the cities including London s Whitechapel and Lambeth he has found the grittiest scenes possible Whitechapel was an area I knew extremely well up to and including the 80s is an area of extreme poverty and has long had an association with immigrants different communities at various periods of its history Conseuently the character of the area constantly changes to reflect its current population in whatever proportions they exist at any one point in timeMcCullin s preference is for the stark and moody and it shows from page 1 onwards There is little here that is upbeat and showing celebration or enjoyment nor would I expect that from McCullin The uality of imagery is high and I would expect it to be from a true professional Some of the images are thought provoking There is no commentary explanation or other details of the imagery other than a bold statement of the location and year for eachAs a side note the dust cover contains rather different images than the hard cover beneathAn excellent and recommended book for the fans of the monochrome image J AI RECU LE LIVRE TRES RAPIDEMENT TRE BIEN ENVELOPPE EN TRES BON ETAT PARFAIT. Ch he'd ust escaped This book marks his return to the cities and landscape he knew as a young photographer At a time when we might believe the world has changed beyond our imagination McCullin shows us a view of England where the line between the wealthy and the deprived is as defined as ever This time he adds wry humour to his lyricism as if the nation is as absurd as it is trag. Ople who will never know what it is to see their life slide out of view like the priveleged Cambridge students the Ascot toffs and the Henley regatta twits that McCullin dispassionately depicts These are the English who will continue to dance to the music of their own peculiar timeI think that McCullin s view of England is of a place that has changed physically and materially from the country he knew as home into an almost unrecognisable foreign land But the people remain the Same It Makes No It makes no whether be they the indigineous population he shows us from the 50 s 60 s and 70 s or the immigrant populations that have moved into what were the working class districts that McCullin himself once belonged to Here is the visual poetry of a man who can capture light to show the darkness in a way that very few others canMccullin himself says that if you come as he does from the grubby market streets amongst deprivation and grindingly hard work ust to survive you ll come out angry He s been angry ever since and it shows in his work But the anger is leavened with substantial helpings of both truth and hope To an outsider it might seem from looking at the pictures in this book that England is a place full To an outsider it might seem from looking at the pictures in this book that England is a place full grim poverty and dismal ruined streets a land of dark satanic mills if you will and that this is merely an excercise in documentary photography But that would be a mistake This is than social history it is a work of art drawn from the very heart of the nation This is not a trite excercise in rich versus poor it is a testimony to the England that is ever changing and at the same time still the same Omnia mutantur nos et mutamur in illis for some and plus a change plus c est la m me chose for othersMcCullin has photographed conflict all over the world bearing witness to terrible atrocities and suffering opening Our Eyes To The eyes to the that men do But here he brings us his solilouay to homeBuy this book because it is beautifulBuy it because it is powerfulBuy it because it cares I thought I would like this book than I did I like the idea of it a compilation of his photos from various parts and times of England and he clearly has a strong political and social conscience which I admire Technically th. Greatest work with an entirely new body of photographs McCullin sees his home country with its perpetual social gulf between the affluent and the desperate in mind He continues in the same black and white tradition as he did between foreign assignments for theSunday Times in the sixties and seventies when his view of a deprived Britain seemed as dark as the conflict zones from whi. I bought this as a present for a friend and he let me borrow it We are both fans Wonderful images If I could take one picture as good as any of these I would die a happy man Having been a McCullin fan almost since I first picked up a camera one is struck with not only how brave this man is but the likely fact that we will never see his type againThis beautifully presented hardback is
"right up there "
up there his best work and while his England is often gritty depressing and rather grubby it is an honest and reliable document of a country finding its place in world As a nation England may not be as influential as it once was but as this book highlights it is interesting uniuely diverse and conflicted much like it is nowIf you are of a certain age group you probably dont miss the 70 s and 80 s This book will remind you why Don McCullin is a photographer of war and conflict But war is not always on the battlefields of some foreign placeIn England there has always been an enormous gulf between the priveleged few and the desperate millions The streets Of London Can Change From London can change from to poverty Fault-Related Rocks: A Photographic Atlas just by turning a corner It was always so and Don McCullin made it his business to record the terrible ineuality Not only London but Liverpoool and Bradford among many others There is a stark and terrible beauty about McCullin s work that hits the viewer where it hurts in his very soul And that s where this book is aimed at the soul of England and the English or British if you prefer politically correctness It isn tust the streets of towns and cities that McCullin inbues with his powerful sense of dark and light his landscapes also talk to us with an almost unbearable elegiac melancholy This is the vision of a man who cares about the people he sees and the land he loves This is the visual diary of the darkness of difference and the darkness that light can make But even the most desperate of the characters he photographs in the urban bleakness are treated with sympathy McCullin invites us to look and feel ashamed that in this wealthy country there are people who were living and continue to live in a kind of twilight zone somewhere between despair and complete hopelessness whilst at the same time there are pe. Don McCullin's view of England is rooted in his wartime childhood and growing up around Finsbury Park in the fifties His first published photograph was a picture of a gang from his neighbourhood which appeared in a newspaper after a local murder; McCullin always balanced his anger at the unacceptable face of the nation with tenderness or compassion In England combines some of his.
