Check out this beautiful photography, published in the Smithsonian Magazine, titled “The Serene Beauty of Horses in the Womb,” by photographer Tim Flach (and check out his site, too ~ he has over sixty stunning photos of horses under EQUUS ~ I could have spent hours staring at my computer screen; it’s absolutely amazing!).
What do you think? How about the photos of the horses in the womb … are they not human-like? Fascinating! I’d love to hear from you.
Here’s a small snip from the article (read the rest here):
Flach’s most intimate treatment of the subject—his documentation of the gestation of a horse—even reveals a biological resemblance. In its earliest, undifferentiated days, the milky white form might appear to be that of either human or equine. But by day 85 the graceful, 5.5-inch-long figure—suspended in formalin and photographed through a glass container—is undeniably a horse. “I hope it inspires a sense of awe,” Flach says. “You’re seeing something in its design stages.”
