Horse Science

Day 10, embryo was done in embryonic fluid and was in transit when one matches the other. I find it fascinating ‘cause it evokes almost a planet quality. The day 30 – that of the baby, day 64 – almost porcelain figure, at 84 days – it has a sense of gesture. The placenta evokes a sense of a leaf-like structure, the blind eye of the Arab horse, that of a planet.
Horses as you’ve never seen them before

What looks like an Arab, about to go out into a boxing ring is an eye surgery mask. The flashing pneumatograph which is a device measuring the volume of oxygen outtake, here being used on a thoroughbred, for me evokes something quite strange, almost a fetish like, a slit-scan camera was of interest to me because it really sensualised on man’s pre-occupation with horse and speed. I have taken the shot by going down alongside a race track and I’ve got behind me in tandem, an open truck with two people holding soft boxes pointed at the horse so that I could share with the dilation of the muzzle and the popping of the veins. The great migration shot for me evokes something of a film set and I wanted to explore something that wasn’t so familiar as thousands of animals going across the river but more the process of the journey, to and from the river. The Zonky, Zebra, Zorse series fascinates me because man can cross these breeds, he does. The Przewalski horse became extinct in the world in 1969. Ten years ago an international program did test the DNA diversity and we introduced the Przewalski in the Aussie national park and now also in the program in the Gobi desert. This is one of the images of the Przewalski which I shot last summer out there.
