Why the long face?
AN entrancing book of photography, Horses and Humans, has been published to accompany a new exhibition at The Gallery, Sculpture by the Lakes, near Dorchester (October 15 to November 12).
Photographer Lucy Sewill—whose work can be seen in the National Portrait Gallery and who remembers fondly every horse she has had, from childhood to adulthood—is fascinated by the ‘joyous bond’ between animals and their owners. Her subjects range from famous horse whisperer Monty Roberts with Shy Boy to Olympic contender William Fox-pitt with Chilli Morning and equestrian acrobat Amy Panter (right, with Mrs Sewill’s horse Malaguena). The exhibition includes 30 photographs, the book 50 (£35, Peridot Press).
