Product Information

Robert Vavra and his camera have spent decades circling the globe, bringing to life the archetypal horse, the creature of myths and legend. Along the way, Vavra has emerged as in icon in his own right. He is to horses what Annie Leibowitz and Richard Avedon are to the rich and famous. His photographs flatter, cajole, surprise and inspire. Vavra takes horses and turns them into that rarest form of art - the kind that sells in six figures...His books have sold more than 3 million copies - not bad for any photographer, unheard-of for a purveyor of expensive coffee-table volumes amid a relatively small niche. And then there are the lucrative commissions he has garnered over the years. When Delacorte Press needs a cover shot for Nicholas Evans' The Horse Whisperer, when Max Factor, Renault, White Horse Whiskey, Jordache, The Franklin Mint, or Revlon needs an artsy horse image for an ad promotion; when the Russian Republics needs a creative advisor for his horse film or Disney needs an equine image for their movie posters, print ads and billboards, their first choice - their only choice - is Vavra. This spectacular volume is homage to his great love, and, in addition to his best images, includes a wealth of material from the magical camera of Robert Vavra that has not been published previously.
