While people who have visually oriented talent often seem to have it in
more than one media, and while musical talent and some degree of visual
talent often seem related, I don't think that it's at all unusual to
find that someone talented in a visual field - say photography - can't
express themselves using written language. Which is to say - there's no
reason to expect that a good photographer will be a good writer. For an
example of this, take a look at Larry Towle's Mennonites - great photos;
awful prose - although the reporting is pretty good.

FWIW, its a good thing Don McCullin took wonderful pictures as his
is hard to digest.
