Equs Luden (Horse at Play)


Photograph on watercolour paper

My work is an exploration of light and colour, using my beloved horses as subject matter. I was able to play with light and colour using the horses’ natural instinct to play. Inspired by both modernist and postmodernist photographers, particularly Nick Brandt and Marina Cano’s photos of elephant dust baths, I highlighted dust to form shapes and sharp lines to contrast the soft lines of the horse. The idea emerged from my childhood and teenage years spent around horses. I was hoping to capture a moment in time, depicting a moment of play for the viewer.
