Statement from David Hurn on the back of print “A Black Mountain wild pony and young tourists brave the elements at this traditionally windy spot. Black Mountains, Wales, GB. 1974.”
“The nature of photography is that normally the photographer sallies forth with some potential content in mind. However, many of the most memorable pictures are an extension of that search when, suddenly, one sees the unexpected. If one has the technical skill to capture this moment, it is often this ‘living’ picture that lasts the test of time.”
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.
