- "No other photographer in modern times has recorded war and its aftermath as widely and unsparingly as Don McCullin. After a childhood in London during the Blitz, and after the hardships of evacuation, McCullin feels his life has indeed been shaped by war. From the building of the Berlin Wall at the height of the Cold War to El Salvador and Kurdistan, McCullin has covered the major conflicts of the last fifty years, with the notable exception of the Falklands, for which he was denied access. His pictures from the Citadel in Hue and in the ruins of Beirut are among the most unflinching records of modern war. The publication of many of his greatest stories in the Sunday Times magazine did much to raise the consciousness of a generation, even it he himself now fears that photographs cannot prevent history from repeating itself. The brutality of conflict returns over and over again. McCullin here voices his despair." "Shaped by War presents the narrative of McCullin's life, a remarkable collection of pictures of McCullin in the field together with the key photographs from his career. Wherever possible emphasis has been placed on the presentation of previously unpublished material. The inclusion of rarely seen colour work challenges the conventional appraisal of McCullin's world being exclusively black and white. Numerous documents, original publications and personal mementoes are reproduced. McCullin recounts the course of his professional life in a series of devastating texts on war, the events and the power of photography."--BOOK JACKET.
