Description

The years of dodging bullets and photographing subjects on the move trained his eye to be quick, but this slower work hinges more on patience. Some of McCullin’s recent landscapes include photographs from his ongoing “Southern Frontiers” series. McCullin is reluctant to place himself in the company of artists, partly because he never wants to feel that he’s ‘arrived’ – ‘The moment that happens, I know I’m finished’ – but also because of the nature of his material. What he needs is some brightness, the sun glowing from behind the clouds, to give him the ‘Wagnerian’ skies he likes to photograph under. The skill in the photography and the quality of the printing of this book are of the highest, and therefore provide a most satisfying experience for the viewer.

He has a lot of stories like this from his youth: the damp basement flat in which his family lived, which contributed to the early death of his asthmatic father; harsh schools with ‘sadistic’ teachers. They show a less familiar side of the world’s most renowned photojournalist, known above all for his images of war and poverty. The veteran war photographer has turned his lens to more peaceful scenes in recent years and for his latest book, The Landscape. In the beginning, the manual labor was a sort of therapy, distracting him from thoughts of the horrors he had witnessed.

The Landscape is the last in a long series of books published by Jonathan Cape, which encompasses the entirety of McCullin’s working life.

The 84-year-old British photographer, who is famed for his haunting images, is best known for his salient photographs of war and conflict, taken around the world.

McCullin’s photos helped create the visual language of suffering that pervades media culture in our own century, from humanitarian appeals to modern-day refugee crises. He has documented Roman ruins in North Africa and the Levant, including the recent deliberate destruction of the ancient site of Palmyra in Syria by ISIS.
