Iconic 1960s photographs from one of Magnum's finest photographers.
“More than perhaps any other photographer from this often-stereotyped decade, Hurn presents one of the most authentic and visually exciting essays on the 1960s that I have encountered.” – Tony Nourmand, Editor-in-Chief, R|A|P
A magnificent volume curated with insight and appreciation for a true master of his art. Magnum photographer David Hurn’s rendering of the 1960s encompasses both Hollywood screen idols and East End sun-seekers; headline news, alongside rituals unchanged for centuries. Photoessays from the streets of New York, anti-Vietnam protests, the London Soho scene, the French Riviera, Queen Charlotte’s Ball and the Isle of Wight Festival in 1969; portraits of Michael Caine, Quentin Crisp, Julie Christie, amongst many more; and Hurn’s work within the film industry, capturing The Beatles during filming of A Hard Day’s Night, Sean Connery in From Russia With Love and Jane Fonda in Barbarella. An incredibly well-rounded vision of the 1960s that is not to be missed.
David Hurn was born in the UK but of Welsh descent, David Hurn is a self-taught photographer who began his career in 1955 as an assistant at the Reflex Agency. Whilst a freelance photographer he gained his early reputation with his reportage of the 1956 Hungarian revolution.
Hurn eventually turned away from coverage of current affairs preferring to take a more personal approach to photography.
He became an associate member of Magnum in 1965 and a full member in 1967.
In 1973 he set up the famous School of Documentary Photography in Newport, Wales. He resigned in 1989. He has since been in constant demand to lecture and do workshops around the world.
In 1997 he collaborated on a very successful textbook with Professor Bill Jay, On Being a Photographer, since then the book has never been out of print.
It is his book, Wales: Land of My Father, that truly reflects Hurn's style and creative impetus. It is a self initiated project attempting to discover what is meant by the phrase 'my culture'. It consists of observations on the remarkable changes taking place in Wales from 1970 until the books publication by Thames and Hudson in 2000.
David Hurn has a longstanding international reputation as one of Britain's most influential reportage photographers. His prints are acquired by many leading collectors and museums.
He continues to live in, and work from, his home in Tintern, Wales.
