In 1964, The Observer sent Don McCullin to cover the civil war in Cyprus. McCullin captured a sequence of remarkable photographs showing the suffering of Turkish Cypriots in raw, unflinching detail. For his work in this, his first major assignment as a professional photojournalist, McCullin became the first British photographer to be awarded the World Press Photo Award.
This photograph was the World Press Photo of the Year.
This image was included in the exhibition "Shaped by War: Photographs by Don McCullin" at the Imperial War Museum North, Manchester, UK (6 February to 13 June 2010)
