David Hurn's Photographic Project

A renowned Magnum photographer records Tintern village life.

World-renowned photographer David Hurn, a member of the top-flight Magnum international photographic cooperative and who lives in Tintern, has recorded much of what happens in the village over a period of several years. He is very happy to be invited to any village event or to upcoming baptisms and weddings (although of course not as the 'official' photographer).

David has recorded his reflections on many village events, including those shown below.
