a year in THe fraMe by edWard WHiTaker
THIS is a winner of a coffee table book — very little reading required but plenty of glorious photos to pore over. Award-winning photographer Edward Whitaker captures the essence of racing in this collection of images encapsulating the racing year — its grandeur, traditions, glamour and toil through the seasons. Each month’s unique characteristics are exposed, a reminder that whatever the weather, we are never more than a few days away from some aspect of the sport to enjoy.
Besides the glitz of the big festivals, Whitaker also captures those “secret” moments behind the scenes, whether it’s Michael Stoute having a laugh in his back garden or horses sploshing though the mud on a January morning at the yard. The short captions are insightful and fun, too.
A feast for all racing fans.
