This November, Hauser & Wirth Somerset unveils an intimate retrospective by Britain’s most celebrated photojournalist, Don McCullin. The focused exhibition presents a culmination of work spanning the photographer’s career to date; from early beginnings in North London to extensive social documentary, unsparing war reportage, haunting Somerset vistas and contemplative still lifes. The retrospective maps over five decades of visual history.
