As part of his 2018 residency, the PMU invited Julien Magre to take a fresh look at the world of the horse. La robe et la main with the photographs of Julien Magre and the texts of Julien Perez will be released on November 8, 2018 at Filigranes Éditions.
For this photographic project, Julien Magre has immersed himself in the world of horse racing, from stables of gallop and trot coaches to the racecourse. While discovering the scenes of the emblematic places that Chantilly and Grosbois are, the photographer wonders about the border between the human intelligence and the animal instinct.
In addition to the beauty of the surrounding nature, the images of Julien Magre reveal all the respect that these riders and horses show to horses on a daily basis, the strength of the bond that unites them and “the respect of the hand”.
