Eamonn McCabe made his name as a sports photographer (for which he won a host of accolades including four times the Sports Photographer of the Year Award and News Photographer of the Year in 1985) and later as The Guardian newspaper's picture editor.

His photographs span a wide range of subjects, from portraits of personalities such as historian and broadcaster Studs Terkel, author Ian McEwan and his famous shot of table tennis player Li Chen Shi, to iconic images such as the Heysel Football Stadium disaster.

McCabe worked as the picture editor for Decade, Phaidon's photographic review of the first ten years of the new Millennium.
