Description

David Hurn began his career as a self-taught freelance photographer and gained an 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. Over the course of his career, Hurn has photographed countless famous faces, forging a number of close friendships on the way by virtue of an extraordinary ability to put his subjects at ease. Pictured here, Sean Connery poses as the most iconic character of his career.
