Donald McCullin is a British photojournalist particularly known for his war photography and images of urbane strife. In 1968 he was commisioned to photograph the Beatles in a one day session : "One day in 1968 I got a phone call, which I thought was a joke. An unfamilar male voice said he was phoning from Apple and wondered if I would consider spending the day photographing the Beatles for a fee of two hundred pounds. They were a little tired of approaches from photographers and wanted to get a fresh supply of pictures. They would return the negatives and I would keep the copyright'' - Don McCullin.
