Churchill’s Funeral, 1965 / Vintage and Pigment Prints
A collection of prints documenting the state funeral of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill, including one silver gelatin vintage print and a wider selection of pigment prints.
“The world’s media congregated in London on 30 January 1965, as Sir Winston Churchill’s funeral procession made its way from Westminster Palace to St. Paul’s Cathedral. David Hurn’s typically inventive response to this sombre occasion was to capture not only the day’s formalities, but also candid pictures of those who took to the streets to mark the passing of the great statesman.”
