Synopsis: The horse has a long and rich history as a subject in the visual arts. In sculpture and painting, in the decorative arts, and most recently in photography, the horse has been celebrated for its cultural and social importance. Horse Power is a compelling photographic portrait of the horse today. From 12 to 17 September 2009, Bolofo documented life on the grounds of esteemed racehorse trainer Christiane Head-Maarek at Chantilly, France's famous racehorse region. Rising early each morning to make the most of the rare access he had gained, Bolofo photographed charming every-day occurrences - a blacksmith forging a horse shoe; filing a horse's hoof; grooming, walking and riding the animals - as well as making candid portraits of ambitious teenage jockeys-to-be.



Bolofo explores every aspect of "horse power" - the physical strength of these million-dollar animals, their cultural and sporting status, and not least their noble beauty.

About the Author: Koto Bolofo was born in South Africa in 1959, but was raised in Great Britain after his family was forced to flee as political refugees. Bolofo's father, a history teacher, was found to have writings by Karl Marx among his teaching materials and was exiled for his supposed "communist practices." After nearly 25 years absence, father and son returned to South Africa, which Koto documented in his short film The Land is White, The Seed is Black. Along with his short films, Bolofo has worked for such prestigious publications as German Vogue, Italian Vogue, Italian Vanity Fair, Nippon , L'Uomo Vogue, Russian Vogue, Italian Marie Claire, British GQ, Sport and Style, Provider and many others. His advertising clients include Hermès, Banana Republic, Façonnable, Burberry, Levi's, Alberta Ferretti, Dom Pérignon and Keratese. Bolofo is currently based in Paris.
