a year in THe fraMe by ed­Ward WHi­Taker

Horse & Hound - - Gift Guide - MT

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.
