Melbourne-based artist Richard Shaw has embarked on a global mission to capture the rituals of the racing world. Courses for Horses is a photojournalistic exhibition that depicts the charm and unique culture of the racetrack, from the buzz of the bookmakers’ ring to the fashionistas and trackside characters. From Melbourne and Paris to Tibet, Mongolia and Kentucky, the collection documents the “Sport of Kings” — a cultural journey through images.
