On Sept. 27: Gallery has ‘horse sense’

Acclaimed photographer Bob Tabor is coming to the Samuel Owen Gallery in Greenwich for a book signing to benefit The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp on Thursday, Sept. 27.

Mr. Tabor’s photography has been praised as a “stunning juxtaposition of renaissance sculpture and modern graphic sensibility” and as “romantic, emotionally intense and technically refined.” In launching a new exhibit called Horse Whisperings, the gallery called his photos a “perfect combination of opposites that results in a breathtaking body of work.” called “Horse Whisperings.”

“I want something ten feet wide or something five-feet wide to bring the same amount of enjoyment into people’s lives. I customize the image to go into your world,” Mr. Tabor has said.

According to the gallery, “The mass of a horse’s body becomes a sculpture when it’s bathed in natural light. Horses are able to find peace within themselves and then Bob Tabor is able to find the individual personality within. He has the ability to wait for the telling moment, to seize the second when two horses nuzzle, or turn their heads just so, or edge into the light so it reveals every sensuous sinew. He then eliminates every trace of the environment so that nothing distracts from the personality of the horse, and the negative space becomes as important as the subject.”

Each image he shoots is produced in limited editions of 18 and they are always untitled to allow viewers to come up with their own stories.

A veteran of the advertising world, Mr. Tabor is world renowned and his work is in private collections and galleries worldwide, and he is available for commissions.

The opening reception will be held Sept. 27 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the gallery located at 378 Greenwich Avenue. According to the gallery, 100% of proceeds from the evening’s book sales will go to the camp’s programs.
