Brought up in Cardiff, David became one of the World Class Magnum Collective photographers. He made his name as a young man documenting the Hungarian revolution and his career as a world-famous photographer and Welsh enthusiasts now extends over 6 decades. His publicity pictures of Sean Connery as James Bond and Jane Fonda as Barbarella are instantly recognised icons. He has worked as photographer with Ken Russel and Dino de Laurentiis amongst other famous names. His Abbey Road series of the Beatles are legendary. More recently he is particularly renowned for his photographs of Wales. He lives in Tintern. He set up the School of Documentary Photography in Newport in 1973 and has supported it ever since. He has generously donated many of his photographs and those of his Magnum colleagues to the National Museum of Wales. Want to know more? Watch, “David Hurn, Magnum Photographer.”
