Publisher's Description

Every winter throughout Spain it is estimated that up to 100,000 hunting dogs are abandoned or killed at the end of the hare-coursing season when they are no longer needed, perform badly or are too old. This book documents those dogs that have been rescued and sets them against the locations in Spain where they are typically abandoned: the sides of roads, the ravines, the rivers, the edges of towns, and the empty car parks. Shot in a style that references the tone and mood of Velázquez who painted at a time when these dogs were treated with great respect, Martin Usborne’s photographs show both the classical beauty of the animals but also the ugliness of their modern situation – their bodies are weakened, their expressions fearful. The dogs in these pictures are the fortunate ones – they have found a place to rest and recuperate. The landscapes bear testament to those less fortunate animals who find a different kind of rest beside the roads, in the rivers, or out in the open plains. Following his successful book The Silence of Dogs in Cars (Kehrer 2012) Martin Usborne again presents unusual and moving portraits of dogs.

Picture of Equus
Publisher's Description
“From the outset I felt quite strongly that I wanted to celebrate the horse in its own right.”

—Tim Flach, photographer No animal has captured the human imagination quite like the horse, depicted in media from cave drawings thousands of years ago through countless renderings in paint, clay, ink, even film. Award-winning photographer Tim Flach’s quest to document the horse has resulted in Equus, an intensely moving look at an animal—as solitary subject and en masse, from the air and from underwater—whose history is so powerfully linked to our own.

From exquisite Arabians in the Royal Yards of the United Arab Emirates to purebred Icelandic horses in their glacial habitat; from the soulful gaze of a single horse’s lash-lined eye to the thundering majesty of thousands of Mustangs racing across the plains of Utah, Equus provides an amazing and unique insight into the physical dynamics and spirit of the horse.
