From James Thorne’s review on

Photographer Jill Greenberg presents a mystifying new collection in “Horses,” a photography book that showcases equine majesty. Greenberg will be familiar to regular CH readers for her other series, which range from crying babies to bears and monkeys. Her style is marked by heavy post production, which in the case of “Horses” takes the form of vibrant reds and purples, fantastical sheens and absent backgrounds. The focus of “Horses” strays somewhat from her previous work on animal subjects. “If the monkeys and bears series were portraits of animals as actors, these are pictures of horses as if they were supermodels,” explains Greenberg. “It’s about figure studies and their physiques and their silhouettes.” Form, rather than expression, guides the work overall.
