EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the quiet moment of a horse feeding at Kings Cross, London, between the years 1946 and 1969. The image, taken by renowned photographer John Gay, showcases the enduring connection between man and animal, as the horse's head is buried deep in the folds of a nosebag, its ears flickering with contentment. The horse's serene expression stands in stark contrast to the industrial backdrop of the iconic gasometers of Kings Cross, a testament to the coexistence of the urban and the pastoral in post-war Britain. The gasometers, with their imposing structures and intricate latticework, loom in the background, their metallic sheen reflecting the soft light of the scene. The photograph invites the viewer to pause and reflect on the simple pleasures of rural life amidst the bustling cityscape, offering a glimpse into a bygone era.
