Horse, a Portrait

Horse, a Portrait: A Photographer’s Life With Horses

Horse: A Portrait is a collection of photographs and writing by award-winning photographer Christiane Slawik. Taking us on her travels around the world, Slawik tells the stories behind the photos and about her personal love of horses. She writes, “Horses have been facinating for me in a way that I can only describe with difficulty. This feeling and facination I try to capture with my camera – this one magical moment that not only I can take home with me in my heart but that others can share in my photos. A moment tht can be everything: strength and elegance, dynamics, combined with wild and simultaneously gentle spirit.” Through Slawik’s incredible photography and inspirational words, we view a portrait of both these magnificent animals and also of Slawik herself.

Christiane Slawik has devoted herself to horse photography with body and soul. Filled with enthusiasm for horses since her childhood and having felt comfortable in all saddles of the world for over 30 years, she financed her academic career with paintings and photographing horses. After several stays in the U.S., a radio-cooperation followed and afterwards many years of moderating, including the job as editor-in-chief at a television station in Germany. Today Christiane Slawik writes and photographs for several international professional journals and publishing houses. On the search for expressive moments the photo-journalist is steadily inspired by the respective situation, by light and color, by the aesthetics, and the individual charm of each horse. Her photographs and paintings have been exhibited in multiple shows.
