Description

Although known as a pioneer of fashion photography, here Steven Klein focuses in on a different type of subject matter. While creating this series, Klein traveled to several different horse farms in both New York and Florida. Placing the subjects against minimal backgrounds, he photographs the horses from unusual perspectives with unconventional close-ups.
