— Don McCullin: The Holburne Museum

The English Group: Work-in-progress


A pleasant morning at The Holburne Museum in Bath to attend the unveiling of a new portrait of one of the 20th Century’s greatest photographers, Don McCullin, painted by Charlotte Sorapure.

The English Group is currently working on a multi-volume Limited Edition book showcasing the most complete retrospective of Don’s work ever committed to print; a project which we are so proud to be a part of.


We were joined at the unveiling by Keith Lunt from Opal Print and Dave Simpson from Create Colour Solutions who have been awarded the equally great honour of printing what is sure to be an important publishing event.


Speaking to Dave about his involvement in the publishing project he said that:


Working with Don McCullin over the last six months has been fantastic. Not only the opportunity to work closely with Don, but to be responsible for the remastering and preparation of each image to a standard of reproduction that has never been achieved before in any of his previous publications.


I am proud to have the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful project”.
