Measurements of photographic print only: 25,5 x 17 cm. Pop festivals bring out the wildest forms of dress sense. “Life as it unfolds in front of the camera is full of so much complexity, wonder and surprise that I find it unnecessary to create new realities. There is more pleasure, for me, in things as-they-are.”
About the artist
David Hurn famously photographs ‘things as-they-are’. His most celebrated pictures of the Beatles from the 1960s shows his spontaneous style that shows the ‘complexity, wonder and surprise’ of life. Born in 1934 in the UK of Welsh descent, David Hurn began his career in 1955 as an assistant at the Reflex Agency. While a freelance photographer, he gained his reputation with his reportage of the 1956 Hungarian revolution. He became an associate member of Magnum in 1965 and a full member in 1967. Hurn eventually turned away from coverage of current affairs, preferring to take a more personal approach to photography. In 1973 he set up the famous School of Documentary Photography in Newport, Wales, and has produced carefully observed photographs that reveal both the traditional and the modern sides of the country. David Hurn has a longstanding international reputation as one of Britain's leading reportage photographers. He continues to live and work in Wales.
