Book Description

Nov. 2 2010
Fabio Petroni has loved horses ever since childhood-and inspired by a painting of Rembrandt, he has produced an exceptional and distinctive series of equine photos unlike any other. His clever use of light, a skill gained from Petroni's long experience as a still-life and portrait photographer, enabled him to create extremely original images, with a unique style that is further enhanced by the book's oversize format.
From a colt trying to escape its overprotective mother to a shy horse who unexpectedly approaches the photographer, Petroni has truly captured the essence of these magnificent animals.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could Have been So Much Better Jan. 3 2013
By Living in Color - Published on Amazon.com

The Problem with buying big coffee table books like this one in Amazon is that even though you can get a great price, the books are not protected enough for shipping, so half of the time you receive books with dented corners, scratched or even dirty. Amazon should have more care when shipping big expensive books.

In reference to the book itself, It is a beautiful size, A big impressive book that gets your attention. Unfortunately I believe that it could have been so much better inside. The author at the beginning states that taking pictures of horses is not an easy task, that might be true. But I own so many big photography books on horses that are well produced, with amazing pictures of beautiful animals, the animals here look even sad. I am returning the book, I did not find anything new nor unique.
5.0 out of 5 stars suspended in images Aug. 27 2014

To a lover of horses, no words, perhaps nothing at all, compares
With the touch, the lift-off from sweaty earthiness to ether;
That’s a space outside my comprehension, more of heaven.
And it’s horse-time.
But in moments when I’m not moving in harmony with my horse partner,
The loneliness may be suspended in images that dance, that sing
Like so many pages in Horses: Master Portraits that almost return
My being to the presence.
