Jitka Hanzlová: Horse
Library Shelf Location 18.HANZ
Publication Date 2016

In previous series, Czech photographer Jitka Hanzlová (born 1958) has explored the connections between individuals, their identities and their environments. In the body of work collected here, she turns her camera on horses. As art historian Jesus Carrillo Castillo has noted, horses are more familiar as images than as animals--so to recapture the physicality of the horse, and convey something of the visceral experience of being with these animals, Hanzlová zooms in on the details. She moves in close to her subjects, creating intimate color photographs of parts of horses, capturing the essence of these animals in the texture of their eyelashes, the fur on their ears or a piece of grass caught in a long tail. Beautifully produced in an oversized clothbound format, Jitka Hanzlová: Horse features a preface by John Berger.
