Powerful, beautiful, wild, fragile, and elegant, horses are as diverse and as enigmatic as people. This oversized luxuriously illustrated book, designed by Sam Shahid, is a celebration of the physical beauty of the animal, of what horses can do, and the sense of wonder and awe that the horse evokes. A competitive amateur show-jumper since childhood, Kelly Klein is a highly respected horsewoman, as well as a renowned fashion stylist. In this stunning collection of more than 250 selected photographs, including many previously unpublished, she conveys her very intimate and personal fascination with horses, and the intense vulnerability that counters their natural power and majesty. Mingling high fashion images with vintage shots of races and rodeos, fine art with amateur photography, this anthology is as provocative as it is beautiful, and reveals the extraordinary spectrum of emotions horses inspire in us. With photographs by Helmut Newton, Annie Leibowitz, Bruce Weber, Robert Mapplethorpe, Chris Makos, Richard Prince, Bob Richardson, and Ellen von Unwerth, among many others, Horse is a definitive reflection of an indefinable love and a passionate tribute to a uniquely beautiful animal. Horse is also available in a deluxe slipcased edition limited to 500 copies, each signed by Kelly Klein.
