On today’s episode, Ute speaks with Christiane Slawik, one of the most famous equestrian photographers of Germany. Christiane has travelled all over the world to photograph horses and she is one of the few who can live from her work. Her photos appear in many different horse books, magazines and calendars internationally. In 2019 she published her latest book “A World Full of Horses” describing her travels and of course featuring many of her best photos. Today we talk about the third chapter in the book which covers her journeys to the Seychelles, a paradise destination which boasts a surprising number of horses. Christiane was lucky enough to have met and photographed these horses over several years, documenting their lives. Today she tells us their unique story with all behind the scenes details.
