The fruits of a fifteen-year labour of love, this is an evocative and beautifully conceived tribute to the unique bond that exists between man and horse. These photographs show horses and their owners from all corners of the earth, often in far-flung, stunning locations. They are astonishingly varied – some are posed, formal photographs, while others are taken in more natural surroundings, bucking the usual practice of traditional, rigidly prescribed horse photography. As well as celebrating the beauty and diversity of different breeds, Arthus-Bertrand’s photographs illuminate the profound relationship that exists between man and horse, a relationship that holds a universal appeal and endless fascination.
