In previous series, Czech photographer Jitka Hanzlova (born 1958) has explored the connections between individuals, their identities and their environments. In the body of work collected here, she turns her camera on horses. As art historian Jesus Carrillo Castillo has noted, horses are more familiar as images than as animals--so to recapture the physicality of the horse, and convey something of the visceral experience of being with these animals, Hanzlova zooms in on the details. She moves in close to her subjects, creating intimate color photographs of parts of horses, capturing the essence of these animals in the texture of their eyelashes, the fur on their ears or a piece of grass caught in a long tail. Beautifully produced in an oversized clothbound format, Jitka Hanzlova Horse features a preface by John Berger.show more

Review quote

Jitka Hanzlova's Horse is a beautifully designed and produced collection of (mostly) color photographs of horses. Her images, which are all vertical, demonstrate a keen, highly refined and idiosyncratic photographic intelligence combined with a child-like delight in observing the physical facts and physical nature of the horse.--Mark Steinmetz "Time, Best Photobooks of 2016 "show more
