A Collaboration With Don McCullin
Antalis are proud to have been selected by Don McCullin to provide support in evaluating the best papers for the printing of his new three-volume Limited Edition retrospective of his life’s work. Antalis has benefited from the parallel opportunity to gain familiarity with McCullin’s important archive; not just the essays of war and reportage photography, but also his landscapes, still lifes and travel photography that comprise the whole of the second volume of this exceptional publication. Print tests are not necessarily the most rewarding part of commencing any new project, but when those tests involve trying to replicate on a litho or digital printing press what Don himself achieves in his own darkroom, it’s no longer work it is a genuinely fascinating privilege. Below, we offer an abbreviated biography of Don McCullin and his life’s work.
