Jooney Woodward: The Riders

Work / Photography

Photography: Jooney Woodward stuns us with her portraits of horse riders

I know it’s foolish of me to expect anything less from the photographer who won the Taylor Wessing Portrait prize only a few years back, but Jooney Woodward’s series of photographs of horse riders is truly a shock to the system. Her disarmingly honest portraits, entitled The Riders, are a product of the time she spent immersing herself in the culture of equestrianism, and her dedication to finding out about her subjects is evident in everything from the glimpse into the subtle, guarded relationships the riders share with their horses to the theatrical costumes the riders wear. Beauuuuuutiful work!
