Madness

Carousel Horses
Carousel Horses

This is probably a sign that I’m seriously deranged … but for whatever reason, carousel horses have always struck me as a bizarre, frightening thing when you stop to think and they aren’t surrounded by shrieking children.

Their faces frozen in a rictus of excitement – or is it agony?  Or aggression?  Something strongly felt but so deliberately vague that you can read into it as you will.  Almost like they themselves are a photography, held still in time, from another world we can only see glimpses of and struggle to understand.

An odd and rather disturbing thing.

Happy shooting!
