Bristol Show Stable
This series explores equine culture in the southwestern United States. The tradition of owning and training horses for competition is often carried on in families from generation to generation. I wanted to show the important bond of the horse and rider relationship in competition. This was a collaboration with Bristol Show Stable in Phoenix, Arizona. Work from this series has been selected for the Photo District News (PDN) Photo Annual in 2017 in the self-promo / website category and ‘ chosen’ for the American Photography 35 annual online archive.
