Remember the White Horse.

Le Caillou Bleu, 2012. 36 pp., black & white illustrations throughout, 7½x10".
‘Remember the White Horses’ is a photo book of a family’s summer holiday in the French countryside. In a series of evocative black-and-white images, Stefan Vanthuyne presents fragments of the idyllic experiences shared by the photographer, his wife and their young child of two years – impressions that will last a lifetime. Also captured is the vulnerability Vanthuyne has felt upon becoming a father, and the incredible bond he observes between a mother and her son. In fact, the book is a documentation of those things which rise to the surface when a new family departs from their normal routines and context, bringing new realisations and emotional layers into their relationship.
