David Hurn (b. 1934) is one of Britain's most important reportage photographers. His documentary photographs are distinguished by their quiet observation and remarkable insight. Released to coincide with Magnum photo agency's seventieth birthday, this is the first book dedicated to Hurn's photographs from Arizona. "In 1979/80 I was awarded a 'U.K./USA Bicentennial Fellowship'. This was a one year award to photograph in America. I chose Arizona - it is the most right wing state in America, plus it is the driest State in America. The exact opposite of my home country Wales. The contrasts appealed to me." Hurn fell in love with Arizona and made several trips back between 1979 and 2001. Hurn's greatest subject is ordinary people pursuing ordinary passions and in Arizona he turned his inimitable eye to ordinary Arizonians in their daily life, their schools, exercise classes, holidays and their landscape.
