I would really like to see this, but it's a long walk.

If there is anyone that has influenced me in photography it's Don McCullin. My bookshelf has just about all his books, and I expect I'll buy what I haven't got when I visit the exhibition. :tup:

    Like Alan, I have more of his books than any other photographer.
    I think for me now it's a case of sod the expence, I need to get to London and see that exhibition.
             Thanks for the reminder.  Graham.

  Ok. So I've booked Tuesday off to come down to the Great Metrolopiss and see the Donny C pics.
  Better just have a look at train fares......HOW MUCH! I want to ride on it, not buy the bloody thing!
  £160.00 return from Derby. I'll go to the local station tomorrow and see what they can come up with. I don't care what time I have to leave home and as long as I'm back for bed time!
  Please don't say I have to go National Express!

I thought they had reduced off peak to lunchtimes :D

I just had a look at the return air fare from Bergerac to Stansted after the bank holiday - it was €69.98 return.  :legit:

OK, been to see the exhibition and held myself back to just 1 book purchase.

It is a thought provoking exhibition, and well worth a visit, It contains about 40 pics covering some landscape, east London circa 1970 and Berlin just before some testosterone loaded soldiers baiting each other caused some one to build a wall in 1961.

Fascinating stuff from a man who really has seen the worst man can inflict on fellow man.
