Equipose gives us an entree into an entirely new realm of portrait photography while at the same time offering access to some of the most perfect specimens that are working today. In this exceptional body of work, Makos explores the convergence of art, style, form, function, and even musculature and power The result is a book every bit as innovative, intriguing, and daring as the man who created it. Ranging from brilliantly crisp black-and-whites to luminescent colours and softly muted sepia-tones, bestselling author Christopher Makos has created an intimate yet wide-ranging volume detailing his encounter with one of nature’s most majestic creatures. He presents an intriguing portrait of the horses: through his lens they are eerily human, yet elusive and beyond our total understanding. In their greatness, the animals exceed the photographers’ frames. Makos’ lense trains on the animals in a way that has never been used before. He focuses our attention on the details: the gentleness with which their necks curve, the naked lines of the back and the strength with which their hooves meet the soil. His images deconstruct horses to their individual features and again reassemble them into full beings. Through the unique vision of one of the great artists of our time, horses are innovatively and daringly depicted in their entirety, their essential selves transformed before our eyes.
