Rochelle Hansen is a Melbourne-based documentary photographer whose area of focus is the collision of humankind with the natural world, using photographs as a way of reconnecting us with the lost and forgotten relationship we once shared with the earth and its inhabitants.
For this project, Rochelle looked specifically at the relationship between humans and horses, the training process and how a partnership of trust and respect can be built between horse and human:
‘By combining strength and movement, horses have the ability to effortlessly float across the arena in a kind of poetic dance that sees human and horse uniting on the stage, engaged in an intimate communication barely visible to an audience’.
