The story
behind that picture
"White Horse"

By Thorsten von Overgaard

In January 2013 I spent ten days in the Qatar desert with Khalid Al Thania, photographing mainly black and white, and mainly after sunset.

One of the days, a range of beautiful horses were brought out for us to photograph.

The setting was late in the day, just before sunset. We worked quickly, because we didn't have much time before the sun would be gone, and with it the light we needed.

Also, the horses moved around and had to be talked nice to in order for them to pose.

 


 

 

There are many things with horses and their expressions. Their ears has to be raised and not laying backwards, they have to stand so their beauty and strength is displayed at it's optimum.

All this, and more, along with working our ideas in a window of about 20 minutes of ideal light.

Not being an expert on horses - most of what I know I learned after, looking at the pictures with Khalid Al Thani while he pointed out what was good and bad in the horses' pose - I made this photograph that I am really happy with myself. The tonality, the composition of the horse and the overall mood.

There's not much light, and that is how it accenturates the horse's beauty, with some highlighted edges that make it look more dramatic.

It's one of the few of my own pictures I am happy to look at again and again. I never get tired of this one.

My Largest Prints - The 72" Aluboard Print is an Art Statement

My largest prints are usually five to six feet tall (72 inches/180cm); "stand-alone prints" made on glossy photo paper (c-print) that is laminated on 3mm aluboard aluminum plates (also known as “The Rolls Royce of photo printing”). The aluboard has mountings and distance bricks on the back, so they are ready to hang with just two screws on the wall. It's a format that doesn't require a frame, and it just floats half an inch or so from the wall. I like this type of photo because it's impressive, it's a statement, and the photo dominates and sets the tone for the room, hallway or space it hangs in.

         
         

Exhibition prints


The Salzburg Collection is a series of 68 prints from the Leica Galerie Salzburg exhibition.

Raffles-Collection Singapore is a series of large 72" prints from the exhibition "I Am Here" .

 


My smallest size print here, shown the way I usually have prints framed.

My smallest prints are 4 x 6 inches

Sometimes I just want to have a photo because I like it. I am not trying to fill a space on a wall, and I am not running a gallery or a museum. In fact, I am not even a collector. I am just gathering things I like; which is original art that is personalized by the artist (usually signed and/or given to me as a gift). In my home I have prints of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Stanley Cubrick, Peter Turnley, Jan Grarup, Paul Wolff, Helmut Newton and many others. Many of them are relatively small prints that can fit on a relatively small wall section, as an integrated part of my home. I made this "junior collector size" of 4.25 x 5.5 inches available because it gives many people the possibility to have one or more of my photos at a very reasonable price, and it happens to be a size I like myself. They can even stand on a desktop, and I think they are awesome.
