Don McCullin: The Impossible Peace From War Photographs to Landscapes, 1958–2011

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

Open: 27 September 2014 – 26 October 2014
Venue: Exhibition Galleries 
STATE LIBRARY OF NSW

 

Reportage is proud to present together with The State Library of NSW, Don McCullin: The Impossible Peace From War Photographs to Landscapes, 1958–2011 a touring exhibition by Contact Press Images.

Over five decades, legendary photojournalist Don McCullin has captured some of the most remarkable photographic images of the twentieth century. His impact on photography will be showcased in the exhibition Don McCullin: The Impossible Peace, featuring more than 150 photographs.

McCullin is best known for his memorable images of the world’s most dangerous conflict areas and social disasters: the building of the Berlin wall, the war in Congo, the Vietnam War, civil war in Biafra, fighting in Northern Ireland and the war in Lebanon. However, his recent photography focuses on sublime landscapes. This exhibition is curated by Robert Pledge, founder and president of Contact Press Images. McCullin’s work has never been shown in Australia before and the State Library is the exclusive Australian venue.
