Smash And Grab, 1969 / Vintage Press Prints

A selection of press prints that document a smash and grab robbery in Bayswater London, which Hurn happened across on the way to his local cafe.

“I went out to breakfast every morning in the same Bayswater cafe and used to nod hello to fellow diner Lucian Freud. I always had my camera with me, and on this occasion, on leaving, everything unfolded in front of me as I walked around the corner. I was experienced enough by then to be able to shoot pictures in the middle of these dramatic events – to capture all the ingredients that a newspaper would need in order to tell the story.”

6 silver gelatin press prints – 20 x 30cm
