Product Description

The work of fine art photographer Tariq Dajani is now available in a new book

Medina Publishing is proud to have published the first fine art book of the photographer Tariq Dajani. In Asil: Photographic Studies of the Purebred Arabian Horse, Tariq Dajani presents a series of beautifully observed and mastered photographs. These portraits contain an elusive quality that draws the eye in, as he attempts to penetrate further into the nature and personalities of his subjects. His work is contemporary by virtue of the medium, yet he is a purist at heart, displaying intellectual depth and classical realism.

Tariq remarked: “I have been delighted by the response that I received to the work, which has been overwhelmingly positive and encouraging – even from people who would never have thought that they could be, in their own words, moved by photographs of horses. That is a tremendous compliment! I felt that a satisfactory way to complete the project, which started out as a series of exhibitions, would be to present the series in a quality photographic book that would, hopefully, reach a wider audience.”

In the foreword, HRH Princess Alia Al Hussein states, “The content speaks for itself in terms of captivating and expressive imagery. What I can add, being personally acquainted with some of the subjects, is that his photographs also capture the personalities of the horses.”

Princess Alia concludes: “the publication of this book will, I am sure, deservedly bring Tariq’s work to the wider public.”

The book includes an essay on Tariq’s work by the poet and photographic historian John Wood, who says: “The Arabic word ‘Asil’ not only describes the purebred Arabian horse but also Dajani’s work. It is a word that signifies purity, nobility, and authenticity – three major constituents of his art.”

Produced to the highest possible standards, this beautiful book is bound with a silk cover, gold blocked on front and spine, with a debossed photograph on the front cover. Asil: Photographic Studies of the Purebred Arabian Horse will undoubtedly find a place in the hearts of all lovers of the horse, photography and fine art.

The book measures 360 x 250mm landscape, 112pp hardback.

  1. Nice photos, too much digital corrections. 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jul 2013

    The photographic work is remarkable, of a very good taste. I humbly think there is an excessive use of digital corrections, specially with almost all the backgrounds which have been digitally treated and sometimes affect the real image of the horses shown.
