Berlin 1961: 'There is just a lot of looking – confused, amazed, puzzled - going on'Archive of Don McCullin, courtesy of Hamiltons Gallery, London

Photography isn’t looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures. Thus Don McCullin, quoted on the information board of a new display at Tate Britain of around 50 black-and-white silver gelatin photographs, chosen and printed by the artist himself. No digital here, the process of the darkroom is under his control.
