Well, the Tate Britain show DON McCULLIN enabled many people to get close to the work of one of the most compelling photographers of modern times. Many was the operative word, all ten rooms were packed with people. 

Each piece was printed to give a feel of despair and hopelessness. From his early work in London in the early ‘60’s, right through to the pictures taken in Vietnam, Biafra, Congo, Cyprus, Beirut and Iraq there was this blackness.  And it’s shadow was cast over more recent work, landscapes and still life.

An important exhibition and at the end of it ones feelings might be characterised with one comment I over heard.
A man to his wife:

“Come along dear, I think we’ve had enough”
