No animal has captured the human imagination quite like the horse, depicted in 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. This highly successful book, originally published in 2008, is now available in a new, more affordable format. Equus provides an amazing and unique insight into the physical dynamics and spirit of the horse.
