Horses in Need Documentary Photo Project 2010

Postby EPNet Admin on Tue Apr 06, 2010 8:22 am

Horses in Need Documentary Photo Project
Documenting horses in need around the world.

This should be a photo - story illustrating a horse's life in documentary/editorial/ photojournalistic style.
Minimum 4 and maximum 8 photos supported by text to tell a story.
Existing work over period of time acceptable.
Photos from this project will be featured in an upcoming special rescue edition of the EPNet newsletter and will be available to AHP publication members for possible publication.
Photos for this project will be uploaded as threads in the forum, not in the photo albums. If you prefer, you may publish your work as a web page and then post that link in the project area of the forum.
Limit three stories per photographer.
Upload Deadline is August 1.

The mission of this project is to shine a light on the condition of horses in need in the world, and the work that individuals, rescues and other organizations are doing to save them from uncertain futures. While shooting for this project and gathering information think of the end use to be an article spotlighting the person(s), horse(s) or group that you are documenting. Make contact on the local level with people working to save horses in need. Make sure that your subject is aware of what you are doing and obtain releases as needed from people that may be recognizable in your photos.

Ideas:
Recycled Racehorses
Sanctuaries
BLM Holding Pens
Auction Houses
Retirement Facilities
Rescue Foster Homes
Rescue workers

Please add ideas, questions, etc as a reply to this thread.
When you are ready to post your story start it as a new thread in this forum:

Question- We have a new rescue organization here "Aspen Valley Horse Rescue." It was established when a few trainers/owners here found out about 60 or so pregnant former Premarin mares were set to be sent to slaughter by a Canadian rancher who said he couldn't afford to feed them. They are all draft breeds (because draft breeds make more urine) This great new rescue group brought all 60 to the valley in January. I have been photographing them.

Would it be possible for me to submit 4-8 photos to the project of several of these mares?

I have received permission from the director of the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary to do a documentry.

I am also awaiting responses from the MN Retired Racehorse Project and Rolling Rock Rescue & Retirement.

Update on Boo the blind horse - I took photos of Boo last year for this project and I have just visited him again and could,nt resist taking some fresh photos of him! He lost his companion Victor The Shire but has settled in with a new companion, a thoroughbred called Oliver. He is as happy as ever and loves the attention he receives from the staff at Redwings. Here he is with handler Jess.

Last year's Horses In Need project had very impressive submissions. The horses that aren't saved break one's heart, but the horses that go on to forever homes due to the efforts of individuals and groups is heartwarming. I'm blown away not just by the number, but the quality of this year's submissions. The quality of the images and writing is something everyone should be proud of. It's an honor to be in such good company.
