Frank Döring enjoys watching skilled people ply their trade and is also intrigued by the interaction between humans and animals. Occasionally, he is able to combine both interests by taking a behind-the-scenes look at the Kentucky horse industry, an environment that outsiders do not often get to see. The work there is muscular, noisy, and smelly, yet at the same time delicate and refined; movements are forceful and quick, yet economical and precise, embodying years of hard-won experience. Frank Döring tries to condense some of this richness into simple, stark images.
