Horses in Australia celebrates the horse in Australia past and present. From Cobb & Co to Black Caviar, from the Walers of World War I to The Man from Snowy River, it showcases our best historical and contemporary images.  From the resilient workhorses of colonial Australia and the determined stockhorses rounding up cattle, to the thoroughbreds that capture the countrys imagination at every Melbourne Cup, horses have contributed to many of the great human feats in our history.  Here, alongside 180 stunning images, Nicolas Brasch shows why we love horses and how they have been captured so strikingly by our photographers and artists.


Nicolas will be joined by photojournalist, Bruce Postle, to show and discuss some of the incredible images from the book

Bruce Postle is one of Australia’s greatest and most highly decorated photographers. His images have appeared on the front pages of major newspapers (including The Age) for 50 years. In October 2014 he was inducted into the Melbourne Press Club Hall of Fame.
