This is Chris and he lives in Alderney. He caught my attention the other evening whilst I was on a mission to find some cows…who had disappeared by the time I reached their field, thanks to the distractions I found in my path. Chris is a sweet natured ex racehorse, who loves to gallop and race around his field, and admire the world going by from his cliffside retreat.
I’m not sure what I’ll do with Chris. I might print him, I might save him. We’ll see. I think he needs to be big, perhaps a big canvas, with a big rustic frame? Any suggestions welcome.
And another racehorse. This is Alberta’s Run, the week before he had a win at Cheltenham. I like to think I had something to do with that but…
I was shooting him on the gallops, shooting him around the yard and finally, we put him back in his stable when he’d had enough and the light just came beaming in and I got the most fabulous opportunity to utilise the morning light and the dark shadows of the stable. Saving the best ’til last. More images of Alberta’s Run can be seen here.
