5.0 out of 5 stars Tribal dignity, 19 Oct. 2009

This review is from: Don McCullin In Africa (Hardcover)
Don McCullin is unquestionably one of the great photographers of our time. Readers who have almost any other of his books will need no encouragement if I say this is absolutely up there with his many other great achievements.
The volume, handsomely produced as always by Jonathan Cape, focuses on tribes in southern Ethiopia. Ethiopians are rightly admired for their outstanding physical beauty - it was a complete privilege to me to have spent sixteen days in remote areas of the north and west of the country about five years ago - and McCullin majors on this quality. However what comes over even more strongly is the resolute dignity of the people - shot after shot catches the upright independence of these often deeply primitive people. I am left full of questions as to what the future holds for these remarkable cultures, while also being amazed that McCullin convinced so many of them to allow him near them so naturally with a camera.
I am sure you could spend hours enjoying this book. It is rare and wonderful.

This review is from: Don McCullin In Africa (Hardcover)
I'm a great fan of Don McCullin, his photographs have a quality which I haven't seen matched in any one else's.
This book is a large hardback, full of beautiful black and white plates, and the author lets the pictures do the talking, as text is sparse.
If any of you have ever seen Bruce Parry Tribe on TV (or DVD) the people will be familiar, they include the Surma and Hama from The Tribe series, but photographed entirely in black and white.
The quality of the photographs again is typical McCullin, printed dark, with that beautiful black and white quality which only Don McCullin can create.
The BW photo's manage to portray the dignity and beauty of these folk, and keep the mind focussed upon them rather than be swayed or made to stray by looking at colour environments.
They are mostly portraits, but include landscapes in the DM style, dark skies, with so much mood and feel to them, most including people.
The budding photographer can also learn a lot from these photos, the compositions, types of portrait and the look of the black and white.
What can I say? This is quality work, by a quality photographer and worthy of any ones collection.
