There are few days left. Best known for her amazingly anthropomorphic and affectionate portraits of monkeys and bears, Jill Greenberg captures the powerful, romantic, and enigmatic nature of horses through her signature lens in photographs that make these animals all the more otherworldly yet familiar. ‘Horses’ is an elegiac exploration of these heroic and often idealized creatures. Transformed by Greenberg’s lens, the horse’s powerful physical beauty becomes a hyper-real vision, and her gorgeous prints seduce us in a subtle manner with sensuous, painterly textures. Stunning photographs of Friesians, Andalusians, Arabian stallions, thoroughbred performance horses. You have time until March the 15th@ O’Born Contemporary.
