Neil Latham’s “American Thoroughbred” at the Steven Kasher Gallery

Steven Kasher Gallery is pleased to present the debut exhibition of Neil Latham: American Thoroughbred. The show will feature over 25 large-scale black and white photographs of America’s greatest race horses including the winner of the Triple Crown, American Pharoah. The show is held in conjunction with the publication of Latham’s monograph American Thoroughbred (Twin Palms, 2016) and on the occasion of the 2016 Belmont Stakes.


In 2013, Latham took a drive from New York City north into horse country to clear his head after his mother’s passing. “I remember the instant it happened. I saw the muscular shoulder of a horse standing by a fence, and I flashed on my mother’s similar back shoulder as she worked in her rose garden. I stopped breathing. I hit the brakes and stared.” Then he did what came naturally as a photographer: he reached for his camera and began to photograph. “The muscular definition and power of the animal was intriguing to me. I tapped into something in that split second, and it linked to my mother. I felt compelled to discover what the connection was.” What he recorded that day on film launched him on a three-year journey to explore the enigma of the American Thoroughbred.
