Don McCullin : Eighty
9 September, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 3 October, 2015 @ 6:00 pmFree
Hamiltons presents Don McCullin: Eighty, an exhibition to honour both McCullin’s 80th birthday this year and his decades of collaboration with Hamiltons. The works displayed are representative of his diverse and extensive oeuvre. Each print in the exhibition is special for its oversized format; many of these images have never been seen before in this size. Each work is a gelatin silver print, in a limited edition of 15, printed under McCullin’s supervision. Whilst McCullin is known for printing his own pictures, for this exhibition he has worked closely with trusted, specialist printers to produce these oversized works as his own dark room is not large enough to make prints of this size. The scale of these images enhances their monumentality and power.
“Sometimes it felt like I was carrying pieces of human flesh back home with me, not negatives. It’s as if you are carrying the suffering of the people you have photographed.” – Don McCullin
