In Mary McCartney’s largest body of work to date she pays tribute to the extraordinary beauty of a white stallion, Alejandro. These portraits place the horse in the context of the rich, bucolic countryside of Sussex where McCartney grew up. Using a medium-format camera for formal portraits as well as 35mm and smartphone cameras for candid shots, she profiles equestrian life from on and off the saddle. These intimate pictures convey the special relationship between horse and rider and offer a profound insight into the connection that binds people to these majestic animals. The reader is taken through an ever-changing vista of lush green meadows, dappled forest trails, and nighttime forests, often using the unique perspective of rider on horseback to afford us the most compelling views. McCartney’s knowledge of the landscape and her unique eye paint a loving and exquisite portrait of a horse and the equestrian lifestyle.
