Don McCullin is recognised as one of the most important war photographers. He has covered events of global significance, including the Vietnam and Biafran wars since the 1960s, on one occasion, his camera even stopped a bullet intended for him.

Now a new exhibition at Tate Britain goes beyond images of war, to highlight McCullin’s wider photographic practice. In this interview for TateShots, McCullin talks candidly about some of the shaping moments in his career, including his first foreign assignment in divided Berlin in 1961; his documentary work on homelessness in East London in the late 60s; and the landscape photography, both urban, and rural that continues to absorb him.
