Project details

I grew up learning that shadow can only exist where light is, so I began to look for it – and found it in the shed light upon the horses eyes. I witnessed two heartbeats becoming one hoofbeat. Sometimes I witnessed one heart only beating for itself. And sometimes I witnessed a heart breaking instead of beating. We don’t see the world as it is, but as we are.

These photos were taken on several races during the winter of 2015.
