Getting Your Goat

Among the maligned hoofed ungulates, goats and sheep have taken more than their fair share of abuse. From Biblical associations with cloven-hooved fallen angels to slanderous stories of forbidden love in the barnyard, goats and sheep have seen little respect in the world of art. Goats and Sheep: A Portrait Farm is an exception. As a photographer, Kevin Horan sees it this way—"Goats and sheep have served us from the earliest of times. They have walked the world with us. By paying attention, we honor the musings of the sheep and the jests of the goats. And so these pictures make a kind of meditation on our earthly brother- and sisterhood. When we draw a sharp line dividing humans from the rest of life, we make the world a smaller place - for ourselves. Why on earth would we want to do that?” See his black and white portraits of goats and sheep at the opening reception for the solo show Goats and Sheep: A Portrait Farm on Friday, July 26 at Photo-eye Bookstore Project Space (1300 Rufina Cir. Ste. A3, Santa Fe). For more information on this free, all-ages event, see photoeye.com.
