The Tate Britain will be putting on a comprehensive retrospective of photography by the UK's foremost war photographer, Don McCullin.

All 250+ photographs were printed by McCullin himself in his own darkroom, and include many of his iconic war photographs from Northern Ireland, Vietnam and Syria.

There are also works captured closer to home that show scenes of poverty in London's East End and the industrial north. Alongside them are some beautiful landscapes from his beloved Somerset.
