Tim Flach is a fine art graduate of Central St Martins in London. He's been fascinated by animals since shooting a project on composition at a zoo as part of his art foundation course. In this, his first book, he brings us a unique insight into the physical dymnamics and spirit of the horse. The project began seven years ago where Tim's realised he'd photographed a horse in a fresh and pleasing way. These semi abstract images form part of the aesthetic section of this book. Two other sections looks at how location has shaped the appearance of different horses along with a more conceptual view of horses.
It's a huge horizontal book measuring 29x36cm with 306 pages, naturally weighty! There's a short introduction to the project by Tim and at the end there are several pages of captions. The rest of the book comprises full page photos of horses photographed in incredible detail, superb style or abstract nature. It's not a technique book, it's not really a book of horse facts.
Here is a coffee table book for those who like horses but want to see them photographed like the've never seen before - beautifully photographed, beatifully designed. It would also make a good book of inspiration for those struggling to do something different with their wildlife photography.
