Synopsis

“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 Flach’s 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 horse’s 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.

The loveliest book of animal photography this year. Before Tim Flach's camera, horses are monuments of grace, movement and power, and of every shape and color... It's page after page of horses, and every page is a gem.

Tim Flach continues the caveman’s tradition of creating an artistic record of the animals that sustain us. His photography book, “Equus,” is a stellar visual and emotional encyclopedia of the horse and its cousins.

Occasionally - very occasionally - comes a book that makes me swoon. Equus, by English photographer Tim Flach, makes me do just that. It combines distinctive photographs of that most noble of beasts, the horse...
