About

In this technically versatile tome, photographer Uli Weber shows his prowess behind the lens, mixing fine portraiture and reportage with animal and sport images in a wide spectrum of fine photographic craftsmanship. Born out of a collaboration with Tatler magazine, whose former editor in chief Kate Reardon provides an exceptional foreword. This title is the spiritual sequel of Uli’s best-selling second book Goodwood Revival, created at the invitation of The Duke of Richmond. The Allure of Horses is a celebration of the “ever-so-British” passion, almost all of the stunning images were shot over the past six years at various manors and estates around Britain. In a unique examination of the close relationship between humans and horses, this title takes readers on a journey across equine communities—from the steeplechase to the Changing of the Guard by the Household Cavalry to the thrill of the polo field to side-saddle riding through the countryside on a warm summer’s eve. The photographer Uli Weber has built a global reputation in portraiture. His work received the Hasselblad Masters Award in 2006, has appeared in Vogue, Elle, and GQ, and has been exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum and Saatchi Gallery. According to Ivan Shaw, former Photography Director of American Vogue, his craftsmanship can be compared to the master Henri Cartier-Bresson. His star-studded portfolio contains portraits of everyone from Eddie Redmayne to Rachel Weisz, and Jeremy Irons to Placido Domingo—many of which can be found in his 2010 book, Portraits. This third title, The Allure of Horses, published by Assouline, is not just about dramatic moments but also the mysterious, symbiotic, and ancient relationship between man and beast—horse and rider.
