The Horses is an acclaimed collection of kaleidoscopic images of horses which appear to be steeped in meaning and mystery.
In 2022 Gareth McConnell turned his camera towards that most unknowable of subjects, the horse, and has produced a provocative and compelling collection of photographs of these remarkable animals.
McConnell travelled to Iceland, a country where the horse is as symbolic to the national landscape as waterfalls or glaciers. Photographs of the horses were taken both outdoors and indoor and, with vivid flashes of colour, McConnell manages to convey the disparate characters of these animals. The work is wild, expressive, restful and powerful. It is clear that McConnell was led by the horses in how he depicted them, rather than the other way round.
The story unfolds without text, providing a sequence of large format, colour-saturated images that draw the viewer into the intimate world of these animals.
