Just got back from an amazing couple of weeks in France/Italy with my family. Above are photos are the Palio in Siena, Italy. A Palio is a barbaric, ancient horse race around an Italian Piazzo (Plaza). Palio’s are dangerous for horses and people, and I don’t feel very good about myself for watching it, but, photography-wise, it was cool.
Back in NYC planning to photograph a more PETA-friendly race, a marathon in the Himlayas that I’ll be shooting in November. If anyone knows a writer that would like to come along with me?
