Editorial Reviews

Review

"Romantic, powerful and mysterious, these beautiful creatures are at their best in these striking photographs by Greenberg, which emphasize their heroic, even mythical, stature." ~Women's Wear Daily

“THIS IS NOT your daughter’s pretty pony book. The subjects, selected for their musculature, look carved from onyx and marble..” ~Los Angeles Magazine
 
“Jill Greenberg captures the beauty and strength of the magnificent creatures. Greenberg revisits her lifelong fascination with horses to create stunning images of her equine subjects.” ~Four Seasons
 
“..the book is a closer look at the history and symbolism of horses in ways that deserve your undivided attention.” ~Complex

"Greenberg captures horses' primal beauty by homing in on tiny details, eyes, manes, taut muscles" ~Entertainment Weekly

I highly recommend this book to any horse lover.
Jane/Mark
I'm an artist and horse lover so I was very captivated by both the photographs and choice of placement in the book.

The quality of art is unmatched in capturing the physical contours of well formed horses.

I bought this on impulse from 'Shakespeare and Company' in Paris France while on my honeymoon and I have to say I'm actually very impressed. Was not aware when I purchased it that it was purely photographs but was pleasantly surprised while I flipped through it. I'm an artist and horse lover so I was very captivated by both the photographs and choice of placement in the book. Very nice composition over all and I got her message without reading the reason for the book by just looking at the photographs. I kinda wish it weren't a book though since the photographs that span two pages sometimes feel ruined by the binding in the middle. I also wish there was a bit more variety of breeds but that's mostly nit-picking really. Love the photo manipulation and it seemed to enhance the photos and give it that slightly more artistic feel than just a really amazing photograph. I think of this book as a huge poem in photographic form and that's not easy to pull off even with such an amazingly beautiful animal that is the horse. If you enjoy horses, art and photography I can't see why you wouldn't like this book.

The book is amazing. Ms. Greenberg brings a mystical look to these awesome creatures. If you are used to seeing her more overtly political art pieces, this is a refreshing change. Check out this recent, one-on-one interview with the artist... [...]

This book is awesome. I own just about every book and magazine about horses and this one is so different
and beautiful. It is a must have. Arrived on time and is a gorgeous addition to my Equine Library.

The photos is absolutely beautiful. The book contains a close-up shot with an outstanding lighting. It's not just a horse photographs, but it's show how coloring light could enhance the artistic quality.
