Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Majestic, intelligent, sculptural: the horse is our partner in work and play and holds a unique place in the human psyche. In this, his eighth book, East Texas photographer Carter photographs horses and their domains in his characteristically unsentimental yet timeless manner. Including the occasional kinetic image of sculptures, Carter avoids the typical cuteness reserved for pictures of these animals. He presents horses as resolute, serious, powerful, and sincere, like figures remembered from a dream. Carter manipulates focus so that details are revealed and obscured selectively, a technique heightened by his deft use of tone and grain. The result is a series of 75 resonant and striking black-and-white images in homage to this beast. The book design is remarkable: full pages are devoted to each image, with titles prominently displayed opposite. Interspersed throughout are brief quotes about horses from various spiritual and cultural texts. An exuberant introduction by critic John Wood and an artist's statement sandwich the photographs. A solid addition to this photographer's oeuvre, this book is recommended for large academic and public libraries. Debora Miller, Minneapolis

Format: Hardcover
I appreciate a good horse as much as the next guy. Looking at horses through Keith's eyes makes me love them. I'm not going to run out and buy tight pants and a helmet because of this book, but you get the idea. The images are well made and seen. Not all of the pictures have the tilt-shift look which has been overdone so that's good. The layout is great. A square book for a square image. Keith's little ditty about Ezekiel's Horse is a warm piece of writing. If you're a Keith Carter fan, buy the book. If you like horses, buy the book. If your interested in photography, buy the book. If your name is Mr. Ed, look for your portrait on page 29, then call your lawyer.

Keith Carter is a beautiful photographer. He has captured the spirit and beauty of horses in a way that I have never seen them. I love his work! I could't possibly pick a favorite title, but I do love "Map of the World" and "Bella". I appreciate the different angle I see horses in from his photographs.
Thank you Keith!

i admit i was skeptic when i first heard about this book, and i had no intentions of buying it. i'm not that crazy about horses. but i got a look at an advanced copy, and i saw the the work was just beautiful and i had to have it. be sure to look at orange tree and nude and arabian, which are my two favorite pictures.

It sounds crazy, but Carter really did a good job of capturing these horses' feelings. What's more, is that he photographed them so well. This is a must have for horse lovers and for people that are wanting a great coffee table addition.

You'll love this.
