Horseman by Will Cornelius

Horseman is the latest addition to Will’s ongoing Craft of Movement series. This series highlights outstanding individuals who are at the peak of their sports.

In Horseman, Will delves into the connection between humanity, horses, and movement. This piece centres around Kanane, a young jockey who is a proud member of Riders Against Racism. Through stills photography and motion, Will captures Kanane’s deep bond with horses and his empowering message that anyone, regardless of their background, can participate in this competitive sport.

Will took inspiration from the early works of Edweard Muybridge, studying movement in one of its most powerful and elegant forms. Shooting the film on 16mm offered the texture and tone that harkened back to the old masters who inspired the project.
