All images by Alexandra Valenti.
One thing I miss most about the farm is the horses.
Among them were a stockhorse-cross named Mohawk -- who basically babysat me from age nine to 15, and only threw me off to teach me how to stay on -- and a copper-coloured quarterhorse named Reverend's Dee Sciple, who seemed to be about three-parts cattledog and one-part rebellious teenager, and only threw me off to see what he could get away with.
Anyway, it's safe to say I loved them a lot, and whenever I was on the ground, I followed them around with a camera.
So, that was a good 10 years of horse photographs. Ten years of photographs that all really should be given the Alexandra Valenti treatment. Her most recent artworks (above) have been popping up on my Facebook feed and making me so happy -- they are by far the most vibrant and brilliant take on horse photography I've ever seen.
