Carousel Horses: A New Virtual Exhibit by BPSI Member, Allen Palmer, MD
Our library is honored to present a new series of photographs by BPSI Member, Allen Palmer, MD. Click here to view the gallery of images and read the Artist Statement below:
“The project of photographing carousel horses began with a photo shoot at Ponyhenge in Lincoln, MA where rocking horses were arranged playfully in circles across a large outdoor field. I started photographing the horses in a large group, using wide angle lenses. With a few repeat visits, I began to focus on the details of the horses instead and moved on to locating and photographing horses on playgrounds and carousels. As the project has gained momentum, I have visited carousels across the country: The Heritage Museum in Sandwich, MA, The New York State Museum in Albany, NY, the Merry Go Round Museum in Sandusky, OH, The House on the Rock in Spring Green, WI and the city carousel in St. George, UT.
This project is a work in progress. By way of macrophotography, I focus on the emotional expressions of the horses as conveyed by colors, surface topography and sculptural details. I have honed in on details with a shallow depth-of-field, where parts offer allusions to the larger forms and, in some instances, themes of aging and decay and of robust youthful energy.”
