This three-volume boxed set is the definitive retrospective of the life and work of Don McCullin: one of the 20th Century’s greatest photographers.
The three books comprise almost 1500 pages of print and more than 700 of his most iconic photographs and previously unpublished images curated by Don and reproduced from vintage or wholly new prints made in his own darkroom.
A limited edition of 1,000 numbered copies, Don has personally overseen every aspect of its production from the photo edit through to press and has hand-signed every copy as a mark of authenticity.
Volume 1: War & Reportage
The largest collection of Don’s journalism ever published, as chosen by Don. For each photograph he has identified a definitive print or, where none existed, has revisited the darkroom to create one. Printed to unprecedented standards with Don’s full oversight it features his most iconic photographs as well as previously unseen images. It includes his most recent, and possibly last ever war photography taken in October 2015 covering the Kurdish militia’s frontline with ISIS in northern Iraq.
Volume 2: Landscapes, Still Lifes and Travel
A series of photographic essays that collects Don’s acclaimed chronicling of the English landscape; his beautifully constructed still lifes; travels through India, Africa and Indonesia; and his record of the Roman Empire’s ‘Southern Frontiers’, much of which is currently under threat of destruction by ISIS.
Volume 3: Unreasonable Behaviour
Don’s acclaimed autobiography, originally published in 1990, now specially updated to take into account his life and career since. Fully illustrated throughout with rare photographs and items from Don’s personal archive, it provides fascinating context to the extraordinary breadth and depth of his work.
