More than a hundred extraordinary portraits--lush, rich, textured, sculptural--that reveal the spirit and nobility of the horse.  Portraits of horses gazing at the camera, standing in the golden light, stamping away flies, galloping, bucking, rolling in the dust.  They are the work of Michael Eastman, a self-taught photographer influenced by Edward Weston, Walker Evans, and Henry Moore, who spent thirty years capturing the essential nature of subjects that range from Cuban life to landscapes to architecture in many places.  Here Eastman has caught the horse's complexity and power, fear and courage, goodness, masculinity, femininity, and uniqueness.
