"'Get closer' is the grim diktat of war photography, and the toll exacted by the work is often, in the end, more spiritual than physical. No one has gotten closer than Don McCullin. He has been photographing wars, mostly for London newspapers, for thirty years, and some of the bestknown images from and alarming number of farflung conflicts are his."
