THE strong bond between man and horse has inspired the latest artistic offering in Boyne Island.
EQUUS: a celebration of the horse is a series of stunning black and white photographs currently on display in the Lake Awoonga Room of the Boyne Tannum Community Centre.
The framed images are the works of Queensland photographer Glenn Hunt which span 10 years and four continents, illustrating the role of the horse in Australian, European, Asian and Middle Eastern cultures.
A two-time award winner of the Equestrian Silver Trophy, Mr Hunt has worked for various national and international newspapers and magazines including National Geographic, The Australian and The Financial Review.
Among other photographic awards, Mr Hunt has won the Australian Panorama Photographer of the Year Award and earned the top gong in the International Photographer of the Year Awards in 2003.
Boyne Tannum Community Centre manager Jo Schuler said the exhibition featured some familiar scenes like rodeos, mustering and gymkhanas.
There are also many foreign scenes such as the Real Escula Andaluza Del Arte Ecuestre in Spain and the Naadam Festival in Mongolia.
“Those that have viewed the exhibition so far are quite impressed by the stunning photographs,” Ms Schuler said.
EQUUS: a celebration of the horse will remain on display until September 25.
It is presented by Ontour exhibition which is designed to promote and share Queensland stories that inspire regional audiences to connect with Queensland's rich creative cultural diversity.
The exhibition can be viewed week days from 9am to 5pm, Saturday from 9am to 4pm and on Sunday from 9am to 3pm.
