Looks interesting! Pity I’m not in the UK at the moment.
On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Magnum Photos, Magnum’s current President Martin Parr has curated David Hurn’s print swaps collection.
On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Magnum Photos, and to celebrate the community of photographers of which he is a part, Magnum’s current President Martin Parr has curated a selection of the print swaps from which David Hurn has built an extraordinary collection.
With a career spanning over six decades, Hurn, like Parr, is also a connoisseur and patron of documentary photography. Over the years he has amassed more than 600 prints, from the 19th century to the present – and most of his collection was built via swapping with fellow photographers. “I have never chosen a print that has not enriched my life,” says Hurn.
The exhibition will take place May 18-21 at Photo London, The Embankment Gallery West, Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 1LA, United Kingdom.
