David Hurn shot to fame with his early photojournalistic work capturing the Hungarian revolution, and went on to photograph famous subjects like James Bond and Barbarella. This book focuses on his sixties images, exploring the turbulent era through its most recognisable pop-figures and pop-moments.

The uniqueness of this collection comes in its well roundedness: shots of the Beatles are interspersed with images of their hysterical fans, debutantes coming out at Queen Charlotte’s Ball are just a few page-turns away from scenes at Soho’s strip clubs. Through the journalistic eyes of a man who saw it all unfolding, a nostalgic and entertaining account of the flower-power decade is formed.
