"A stunning book" The Times
A Year In The Frame is award winning sports photographer, Edward Whitaker’s third collection of images following on from In The Frame and Beyond The Frame. These photographs encapsulate the racing year; its grandeur, its traditions, its variety, its vivid palette of colours. Festivals from around the globe punctuate the calendar and these are brought to life through the lens of a master craftsman.
From Cheltenham to Chantilly, Meydan to St Moritz, the best that the sport of kings has to offer is captured in moments, at times vast in scale and at others focused, intimate. Stars, both equine and human are on show, as well as racegoers who tend to dress for the occasion and not the elements they may have to battle, whilst the unique characteristics of each month are exposed chapter by chapter. Racing fans are reminded that they are never too far away from something to enjoy.
"The images within its 175 pages capture the atmosphere of the sport of racing in a way no written word could do in a thousand pages." The Racing Forum
