Vietnam Photographer

At the age of 30, the British photographer, Don McCullin, travelled to Asia for his second ever war assignment - Vietnam.

His graphic photographs of the fighting made his reputation and influenced public opinion in the West.

But even now, McCullin is still pained by his experiences in Vietnam.
