Oman Desert, 2016

Kadir Civici

This photograph gives meaning to the phrase “poetry in motion.” A horse kicks up sand as it gallops across the desert in a frozen moment of furious motion. Sprays of sand, shot through with sunlight, describe the horse’s path, like jets of water in a frothing torrent. The photo’s resolution is so high that you can see individual grains of sand suspended in midair. The artist’s decisions about how to frame and crop this remarkable image enabled him to capture its essence: the animal’s raw power and grace as it moves through its world.
