Throughout the ages the horse has played a pivotal role in Irish society. It is a ubiquitous symbol in Ireland, present in many classic depictions of our culture, from loyal work horse to traditional horse fairs. Over a twelve-month period, David O'Flynn has collected a varied selection of images of the Irish, in these and other less cliched guises, and discusses how the horse's role has mirrored the change in Irish culture as Ireland developed into a modern society. While focusing on a central theme, David O'Flynn has collected an incredibly diverse number of striking photographs, ranging from elegant shots taken at the annual show jumping at the RDS to images of the milling crowd at the horse fair in Ballinasloe. Through these photographs he has created an informal and unique portrait of the Irish. This book is essential for lovers of horses and for lovers of beautiful photography.
