Horse Track Portraits

I’ve been working on the Horse Track Portrait series almost every Sunday for three years now at the Golden Gate Fields horse track in Berkeley. All the photos are of anonymous people at the edge of the track fence during the brief races and were shot without the subject’s knowledge/consent. I’m in the very early stages of editing this material into a book and hope to have a dummy compiled this fall. I usually preface the slideshow presentations of this work with a quote from Frederick Sommers: “Only chance is fair.”
