Don McCullin: Seeking the Light

Don McCullin is one of Britain’s greatest photographers. He has travelled the world, capturing raw, powerful images of war, famine and disaster.

Having used film exclusively throughout his photographic life, this summer McCullin agreed to make a film with Canon documenting his journey into digital photography using the new Canon 5DMk3 camera.

This 30 min film is fascinating to watch. Set in the South of France, it shows McCullin learning about and adjusting to the new technology for the first time.

Although at times a little like a love letter to Canon, it nevertheless offers a real insight into how one of Britain’s greatest photographers thinks about making his images.

Well worth a look here at Canon’s CPN website.
