Equipose Coffee Table Photography Book by Christopher Makos
Hardcover, 160 pages, profusely illustrated throughout in full color.
EQUIPOSE is an astonishingly beautiful excursion into pastoral worlds made wondrously new again. It is a stunning achievement. The fact that the photographer is Christopher Makes and the subject is horses makes this collection a unique artistic event. ~Dotson Rader, from the preface.
From the back cover:
During his long and successful career, Christopher Makos has photographed the most beloved and intriguing icons of our time - Mick Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor, John Lennon, and Andy Warhol, to name just a few. Now in a unique and original work, EQUIPOSE, Makos takes on another compelling subject: horses. Photographed in his own distinctive and daringly evocative style, this landmark book transforms what we know about these majestic animals through the lens of a genius photographer.
HoofPrints owner Gina Keesling's thoughts:
This book is full of lovely, technically amazing photos. But the part that drew me to it may NOT be what the photographer and publisher intended. Because of the amount of white space on many pages, and the smooth, matte quality of the heavy paper it's printed on, I think this book would make in incredible journal. I wanted to draw and write all over the margins, embellish the photos with metallic gel pens - the photos, to me, are a creative springboard on every page.
I am not sure if Christopher Makos would appreciate that I want to augment his photo book with my own work, but I will just leave this here to see what you all think...
