Overview

“From the outset I felt quite strongly that I wanted to celebrate the horse in its own right.”                                         —Tim Flach, photographer

No animal has captured the human imagination quite like the horse, depicted in media from cave drawings thousands of years ago through countless renderings in paint, clay, ink, even film. Award-winning photographer Tim Flach’s quest to document the horse has resulted in Equus, an intensely moving look at an animal—as solitary subject and en masse, from the air and from underwater—whose history is so powerfully linked to our own.

From exquisite Arabians in the Royal Yards of the United Arab Emirates to purebred Icelandic horses in their glacial habitat; from the soulful gaze of a single horse’s lash-lined eye to the thundering majesty of thousands of Mustangs racing across the plains of Utah, Equus provides an amazing and unique insight into the physical dynamics and spirit of the horse.

    Absolutely Amazing!

    I had the privledge to view this book and was blown away by the images. I am a true horse lover and I have never seen these beautiful creatures captured in such a way. I'm putting this one at the top of my Christmas list! If you appreciate horses and incredible photography you should put it on your list too.

    Big Disappointment

    I ordered this book for my daughter who is studying to be an equine vet in college. The best picture in the book is the one on the cover. My best description is that it is an abstract collection of pictures of parts of horses. It has a lot of pictures of horse eyes, hooves, legs, backs, sides, and ears, but very few full pictures of horses. There are also a lot of blank pages in it with one or two words on them. The detail section didn't provide enough information and I hoped for the best when I ordered it, but it was a big let down

    Equus Is So... WOW

    I had gotten this book for Christmas and I was so amazed at how he captured the beauty of Equus Caballus (Scientific name for horse). This book was so entertaining. I favored all the horses and watching the horse devalop in the mother's fetus was fantastic... and to see the horse in armor was just entertaining. I love this book so much that I recommend it to all horse lovers of all kinds. It will make you have a different looks of horses.

    A must for horse lovers, animal lovers, or anyone who loves phenomenal photography.

    I bought this book after purchasing TIm Flach's calendar, "Equus", and was so drawn to his photographs that I had to find out more about him. I found his gorgeous hardcover book by the same name and purchased it immediately. I spent a long time perusing the gorgeous, breathtaking photos. He captures horses like no other artist ever has before. The photographs show different angles and viewpoints of horses that show their true beauty, in their own environments. The quality of his photographs are amazing- every detail is on the page- every whisker, hair, speck of dust, and ripple of muscle. This book takes time to appreciate- you will not want to rush through it.

    The book itself is a great coffee table book- large, with thick, glossy pages. Many guests have already picked up this book and have not been able to put it down. I highly recommend it, and already plan on giving copies as gifts, and will purchase the Equus calendar as long as it is produced.

    A beautiful book of horse photographs

    I bought this book as a Christmas present for my daughter, who is learning photography and loves horses. It was a perfect companion for both interests.

    Beautiful photography

    Bought this as a gift for my mom and the photography is beautiful. Only complaint is the quality of the binding isn't that good. Cracked in places.

    No description of pictures

    I would really like to buy this book but the description does not give even a clue of how many pictures are in the book so for the price, I guess I cannot purchase it.
