The Park Gallery is delighted to be showing WORKHORSE, The Clydesdales of Flanders Moss by Michael Prince to mark Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology by EventScotland .
From the mid-18th century to the late 20th, life and work in Falkirk depended on horses for transport, deliveries, military activity, law and order and industrial power.
Michael Prince is a television producer, director, filmmaker and landscape photographer. He is based in Stirlingshire, on the edge of Scotland’s beautiful Trossachs National Park.
"I’ve been photographing the Clydesdales at Flanders Moss , Stirling since 2013. I was immediately drawn to their beauty and presence as a potential subject and could see the visual possibilities in documenting some of their story within the exposed environment. Latterly I began shooting double exposures, on film rather than digital photographic processes, this has allowed the story of the Clydesdales to naturally evolve into one where creature BECOMES landscape”
