Don McCullin discovered photography during his period of compulsory national service with the Royal Air Force in the mid 1950s. From 1959 onwards, he pursued a career in photojournalism single-mindedly. McCullin's coverage of the construction of the Berlin Wall brought him the first of many awards and a part time contract with a major British national newspaper The Observer.
This image was included in the exhibition "Shaped by War: Photographs by Don McCullin" at the Imperial War Museum North, Manchester, UK (6 February to 13 June 2010)
