David Hurn: Arizona Trips


David Hurn: Arizona Trips

Magnum's David Hurn (born 1934) is one of Britain’s most important reportage photographers.

His documentary photographs are distinguished by their quiet observation and remarkable insight. “Life as it unfolds in front of the camera is full of so much complexity, wonder and surprise that I find it unnecessary to create new realities,” he writes. “There is more pleasure, for me, in things as they are.”

Released to coincide with Magnum photo agency’s 70th birthday, this is the first book dedicated to Hurn’s photographs from Arizona. In 1979–80 he was awarded a UK/USA Bicentennial Fellowship, a one-year award to photograph in America. He chose Arizona, as “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, turning his inimitable eye to ordinary Arizonians in their daily life, their schools, exercise classes, holidays and their landscape.

Irresistible 'Arizona Trips' by David Hurn

Irresistible 'Arizona Trips' by David Hurn

This 1979 photograph of the desert between Phoenix and Tuscon—the major area of potential development—is reproduced from Arizona Trips, Reel Art Press’s remarkable new collection of photographs by David Hurn. Largely made over the course of a one-year UK/USA Bicentennial Fellowship to photograph in the state of Arizona, the images gathered in this concise but impossible-to-put-down volume are universally fascinating. Football games, wild horse roundups, tarantula races, senior beauty pageants, retiree roping competitions, animal cemeteries, demolition derbies, Mexican weddings, Apache baby contests and winter cacti covered with protective paper cups are just a few of the pictures that have made this book an end-of-year favorite for CNN, The Guardian, It’s Nice That and more. continue to blog
