Remember the White Horses opens with an image of a road running through woodland on a summer’s day. A journey begins. But this is no classic road trip. Instead, the journey is a familiar one, both in the sense of a family outing and a metaphoric journey. The images – monochrome, warm-toned, set in the middle of silky white pages - are highly sensual. We see a woman and a child, both naked in the sunshine. And a little white family dog. The woman is swimming in the river, outstretched beneath the water. Then she is sitting, face tilted upwards towards the warmth of the sun. The child is lying in the long grass laughing at a large sky, open to new experiences and possibilities.
