The idea to realise images in the particular style characterising this book was born from observing a painting by Rembrandt, which elicited Fabio Petroni's to produce images that would have an analogous emotional impact.

Petroni made the choice to portray the horses without riders or halters and out of any sort of context in order to emphasize their inner state. And so we see passing in parade before the lens, horses that are wild, timid, aggressive, haughty, indolent, protective, curious and sweet.

From a colt trying to escape its overprotective mother to a shy horse who unexpectedly approaches the photographer, Petroni has captured the essence of these magnificent animals.
