Horse: The Horse and Irish Society

The History Press Ireland, 2011 - 96 páginas
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 Irish culture, from the loyal work horse in the field to the more urban image of the horse ascending the tenement buildings in the elevator. Over one year, David O'Flynn collected images of the horse in Ireland in these and some other less clichéd guises and discusses how the horse's role in Ireland has changed and adapted to modern times. While focusing on a central theme, O'Flynn has collected an incredibly diverse number of dazzling photographs, ranging from elegant show jumping shots taken at the RDS to shots of Connemara ponies taken in the wilderness. This book is essential for lovers of horses and for lovers of beautiful photography.
