‘The mane attraction’ Horses by Wiebke Haas.

“Horses can be hilarious!” says German photographer Wiebke Haas.
“It’s my greatest passion to tease out nearly human expressions from them.” She has turned this passion into a delightful series called Horsestyle (shortlisted for a 2018 Sony World Photography award) featuring stallion Pauli with his lovely Elvis lip-curl, and Linus with a big, bouncy mane to rival Farrah Fawcett’s.
Haas grew up around animals, which perhaps explains why her horses look so at ease. “The most difficult part was to keep them straight to the camera,” she says. Her secret? Horse goodies and the occasional “tickle in the ear”.

Wiebke Haas: ‘Young stallion Pauli is a clown. It was more difficult to illuminate his black coat in front of the black background. I needed the flash lights on full power.’

‘Linus is a heartbreaker with his blond mane and tale. He was so relaxed in the studio and did his job patiently and like a professional model.’
