Celebrated Magnum photographer David Hurn is one of Britain’s most influential reportage photographers. Of Welsh descent, Hurn gained his early reputation with his reportage of the 1956 Hungarian revolution. He eventually turned away from coverage of current affairs, preferring to take a more personal approach to visual narration.

Hurn has spent much of his professional practice documenting life in Wales. His recent work explores humankind’s sometimes absurd impact on the Welsh landscape.

This exhibition presents some of the works featured in the film AS IT IS: Man’s Footprint on the Welsh Landscape by artist Zed Nelson, who followed Hurn’s photographic journey around Wales.
