Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than a hundred extraordinary portraits — lush, rich, textured, sculptural — that reveal the spirit and nobility of the horse. Portraits of horses gazing at the camera, standing in the golden light, stamping away flies, galloping, bucking, rolling in the dust.

They are the work of Michael Eastman, a self-taught photographer influenced by Edward Weston, Walker Evans, and Henry Moore, who spent thirty years capturing the essential nature of subjects that range from Cuban life to landscapes to architecture in many places. Now he turns his refined eye to the magnificent horse.

Eastman has caught the animal?s complexity and power, fear and courage, goodness, masculinity, femininity, uniqueness.

"All animals are wonderful," says Eastman, "but horses are truly mythic."

Review:

"Eastman approaches these noble creatures with a startling lack of sentimentality, capturing them at odd angles, with the occasional quizzical look, twisted lip, or weary eye....[A]fter careful study the power and beauty of Eastman's images become evident. Shot in sepia tones that suggest a haze of dust, they are deeply honest renderings of the equine spirit and the horse's uniquely beautiful architecture." Library Journal
