War changes everyone–including photographers. In fact, Don McCullin recently spoke in a short interview about the mentality of the photographer and the people in wars. He brings up a ton of situations such as photographing a dying person or someone about to be executed. Don states that part of how he stayed, “a human being” is by thinking about his children and taking care of his family. And instead of wars, he talks about how much he loves photographing landscapes instead of wars.
“I don’t want to be remembered as a war photographer. I hate that title” states McCullin towards the end of the short interview.
