We are delighted to welcome Amanda Lockhart, one of the UK’s foremost equine photographers, to Augustus Brandt.
This exhibition is the first to combine images from two of Amanda’s photographic books, The Art of the Chase – a elegiac portrayal of hunting in Britain leading up to the 2005 hunting ban – and The Art of the Race, a pictorial documentary behind the scenes of British racing.
The pictures, almost all shot on negative, have been reformatted to create large, limited-edition, giclée prints, available here for sale for the first time.
Amanda’s work captures the pure freedom of horse riding and hunting. Figures on horseback are carried through vast landscapes, up gallops in Lambourn, across great open fields and down the home straight back to the stables in Newmarket. Similarly, hounds are photographed on rolling hillsides, windswept and instinctively alert.
