The two sides of the human relationship with horses are reflected in a new book celebrating the practical and the spiritual. Stromberg is a professional photographer who came to horses and riding later in life. Horses became his teachers, reminding him of valuable truths about the connection of people and nature. They speak to him of the wild and of a world without boundaries. The photos in this mostly wordless, coffee-table-size book reflect these beliefs, and are of horses unrestrained by riders or tack, mostly without enclosures. Printed in color, black and white, and sepia tones, they often show horses in motion, manes and tails flying, with dust or sheer movement blurring the edges of the photo. Many subjects are not well-groomed show horses but rather their wilder brethren with shaggy forelocks and rough coats. Sprinkled throughout are quotations that range from the Dalai Lama to Henry Beston to D. H. Lawrence. This lovely book will more than please horse lovers.
