Publisher Comments:

“From the outset I felt quite strongly that I wanted to celebrate the horse in its own right.”                                         —Tim Flach, photographer

 

No animal has captured the human imagination quite like the horse, depicted in media from cave drawings thousands of years ago through countless renderings in paint, clay, ink, even film. Award-winning photographer Tim Flachs quest to document the horse has resulted in Equus, an intensely moving look at an animal—as solitary subject and en masse, from the air and from underwater—whose history is so powerfully linked to our own.

 

From exquisite Arabians in the Royal Yards of the United Arab Emirates to purebred Icelandic horses in their glacial habitat; from the soulful gaze of a single horses lash-lined eye to the thundering majesty of thousands of Mustangs racing across the plains of Utah, Equus provides an amazing and unique insight into the physical dynamics and spirit of the horse.

Synopsis:

Award-winning photographer Flach's quest to document the horse has resulted in "Equus," an intensely moving look that provides an amazing and unique insight into the animal's physical dynamics and spirit.
