Donald McCullin discovered photography in 1960, during his military service at the Royal Air Force. In 1964, he won the prestigious prize World Press Photo thanks to a series about civil war in Cyprus. From Vietnam to Afghanistan, he covered all the major world conflicts portraying the reality in a sincere and neutral way. He uses to say that “the camera just has to do her job”. As every year, Queen Elisabeth II awarded with the knighthood honors some remarkable personalities and it is not surprising that, after his last journey to Irak as a photojournalist, McCullin received the supreme English reward.
