Don McCullin Photo Show Looks at 6 Decades Covering Conflict

Don McCullin Photo Show Looks at 6 Decades Covering Conflict

Monday, 04 February 2019 12:38 PM EST

LONDON (AP) — Don McCullin's most famous photographs scorch with the physical and emotional brutality of conflict: a shell-shocked American soldier in Vietnam, a starving woman and child in Nigeria's breakaway Biafra.

But don't call him a war photographer. Asked about the term Monday, McCullin says: "I hate that."

Still, a major new exhibition of the British photographer's work is full of damaged people, ravaged landscapes and scarred cities from Beirut to Belfast. His black and white images powerfully capture the emotions of war.

The retrospective of more than 250 images runs from Tuesday to May 6 at Tate Britain , the country's foremost gallery of U.K. art.

But don't call McCullin an artist.

"I hate that, too," he says. "I'm not an artist. I'm a photographer, and that's all there is to it."
