Don McCullin’s Irreconcilable Truths at Photo London

On Friday 20th May, Don McCullin hosted a Reception at this year's Photo London event and revealed for the first time copies of his Limited Edition lifetime retrospective, Irreconcilable Truths.

This industry defining edition comprises three volumes and 1500 pages of print excellence, and is the first of an exciting planned roster of titles to be published by The Provocateur Press.

Everyone who was able to peruse the publication at the event expressed awe for this definitive exhibition in print of Don’s life work, and also the superb quality of reproduction of the images featured; all of which have been scanned afresh for this publication and many never previously published.

Three Volume Irreconcilable Truths

I am proud indeed to have been able to work with Don McCullin and The Provocateur Press in the realisation of this important project.

I am also able to offer readers of this post the opportunity to benefit from a 15% pre-publication discount by entering the code AINSLIE15 when ordering online at

You might need to be quick though, almost 50% of the print run has been ordered pre-publication.

The official publication date for this title – owing to the fact that the presentation box for the three volumes is a bespoke item made by hand using artisan production processes – is September 2016, at which point the pre-publication cover price will be significantly increased.
