There is a moving interview with Don McCullin

. . . here at The Guardian. McCullin seems like a remarkable man. He makes clear the the alleged glamor of being a photographer of war and mayhem is an illusion: "Some times 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."

McCullin always comes across as a man of incredible honesty and wisdom. All those who go to photograph violence and misery in order to advance their careers would do well to pay heed to what this man says about it. I happen to really like his landscapes photographs too.
