Statement from David Hurn on the back of print "A fan recognizing Paul McCartney during the filming of The Beatles' film"
"One of the unsolved mysteries - or joys - of photography is how a group of items or facts in a photograph can seemingly produce a different reaction than the obvious when one simply analyses the component parts. There is always ambiguity related to our personal imagination. What is the lovely lady with the camera thinking? What is the hero of the moment, Paul, suggesting? What does pointing suggest?"
