Ffotograffau gan y ffotograffydd Magnum David Hurn, ynghyd â ffilm am yr artist gan Zed Nelson

Mae’r ffotograffydd Magnum adnabyddus David Hurn yn un o ffotograffwyr gohebiaeth mwyaf dylanwadol Prydain. O dras Gymreig, enillodd Hurn ei enw da yn gynnar gyda’i ohebiaeth am chwyldro Hwngari yn 1956. Yn y pen draw, trodd wrth faterion cyfoes, gan ddewis cymryd agwedd fwy personol tuag at naratif gweledol.

Mae Hurn wedi treulio llawer o’i waith proffesiynol yn croniclo bywyd Cymru. Mae ei waith diweddar yn archwilio effaith y ddynoliaeth, sydd weithiau’n absẃrd, ar dirwedd Cymru.

Mae’r arddangosfa hon yn cyflwyno rhai o’r gweithiau a gafodd sylw yn y ffilm Fel y Mae: Ôl Troed Dyn ar Dirlun Cymru, gan yr artist Zed Nelson, a ddilynodd daith ffotograffig Hurn o amgylch Cymru.
