The Burlington Magazine website

Readers who have recently visited our website (www.burlington.org.uk) will have noticed that it has undergone a complete redesign. As well as looking refreshed, it is now easier to navigate on all platforms, since increasingly users are accessing its content on tablets and smartphones. Such variety was hardly conceived of when the website last underwent a major redesign, in 2014. Another reason for the change was the launch last year of Burlington Contemporary, our online journal for contemporary art (www.contemporary.burlington.org.uk).

Don McCullin

Don McCullin is a photographer who consistently rejects any attempt to define himself or his work in detail. Such reluctance is understandable, given the diversity of his work. Throughout his long career, he has moved seamlessly between the genres of press, social documentary, travel, portraiture, still life and landscape photography. McCullin particularly dislikes being labelled as a ‘war photographer’, the term most frequently associated with him, and strenuously rejects the suggestion that he is an artist. Referring to one of his (2006–17; nos.157–64), the exhibition presents a stunning demonstration of McCullin’s mastery of the art of black and- white photography.
