Read full description of the books Unreasonable Behavior: An Autobiography:The job that war reporters do is an important one and I admire them for it. I'm a photographer myself but I don't know if I could do that job. The camera creates distance but Don McCullen also saw a lot without the camera in front of his face. I do not envy Don McCullen and other war reporters because the horrible things they have seen will always stay with them. It is admirable that he didn't become more of a cynic and very bitter. This autobiography shows that you can still stay human in inhumane conditions.
Read information about the authorDon McCullin grew up in north London and was evacuated in 1940 to Somerset. He failed the eleven-plus examination and went to Tollington Park Secondary Modern School. He won a trade art scholarship to the Hammersmith School of Arts and Crafts and Buildings. His father, who was an invalid, died, aged forty and McCullin was forced to find work to earn money for the family. He became a pantry boy on the London, Midland and Scottish Railway dining cars, travelling between London and Manchester. In 1950 he went to work in a cartoon animation studio in Mayfair before the Observer newspaper bought one of his gangland pictures and set him on the road as a photojournalist. He moved to the Sunday Times, where he worked for eighteen years. His photographs of almost every major conflict in his adult lifetime until the Falklands war provide some of the most potent images of the twentieth century. His pictures are in major museum collections all over the world. He is the holder of many honours and awards, including the C.B.E. His home is in a Somerset village.
