    Powerful stuff indeed. Someone had to do it but it surely takes a very special human being. I'm sure the memories will haunt him until the end of his days.

    Thanks very much for the link. I read in McCullin's autobiography how certain negatives haunt him, and here I think he was singling out the Biafran albino boy photo, you got a real sense in that book of how the horror of what was photographed lives not just in the negative but also in the memory.

    I had the pleasure of sitting down with Don and talk about his whole life. Then we went outside and i took this portrait of him.

    Excellent picture, DarkMagic! For those interested in Don's work and life...read his autobiography "Unreasonable Behaviour"

    This really had a profound effect on me:

    "It really messes you up," he said. "It's incomprehensible the way human beings can slaughter each other in front of you. And you take it home with you. And it's like you haven't cleaned your teeth in several months, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth."

    It's almost impossible to be empathetic and try to understand what McCullin must be going through... Wow.
