A home for the things I think are worthy of sharing. Will largely be photography based.

There seem to be quite a few Photographer based Documentaries in the works at the moment!

Just seen (via Photo Archive News) that there’s one about Don McCullin showing in London at the moment! May go and see. Although there are a few conflict photography films I have on DVD but yet to watch e.g. Bang Bang Club.

I only realised that Don McCullin was still alive a year or so ago. Since then I’ve :

– Been to see his exhibition at the Imperial war museum which was very impressive – including his famous Nikon which stopped a bullet.

– Just got his autobiography this Christmas (but not read yet) : “Unreasonable Behaviour: An Autobiography”.

– And also realised I’ve lived a couple of streets away from where he grew up in Finsbury Park

 

Anyway – I have lot of respect for the guy – not just because of photography skill – but how he talks with compassion and emotion about how, what and why he photographed and also the effect it had on him.

Here’s a trailer:

It’s currently showing at the Curzon in Soho.  It looks like it’s showing up to an including Jan 17th. ICA is also showing – but ending same day.
