Eclipse Award-Winning Photographer
Barbara D. Livingston's Loving Tribute to Racing's Remarkable Retirees
KY August 14, 2002 Eclipse Press announces publication of Old Friends
Visits With My Favorite Thoroughbreds.
D. Livingstons Old Friends combines her photos and essays
to share her passion for aging Thoroughbreds, horses that once commanded
center stage but often become almost invisible with time, except
to those who love them. Through her words, Livingston recounts their
storied pasts; through her lens, Livingston finds the spark that
momentarily clears their eyes and rekindles the fire of youth or
just stirs the embers of their glory days.
Friends is a heartfelt tribute to the life of a Thoroughbred beyond
the racetrack and breeding shed the season of life that, perhaps,
is the most overlooked.
photographs are among the most recognizable in Thoroughbred racing.
The clarity, mood, and uniqueness of each moment she captures have
made her a regular contributor to many publications, including The
Blood-Horse. She has won two Eclipse Awards for outstanding photography
and numerous other awards. Livingstons work also has appeared
in Newsweek, People, Cigar Aficionado, GQ, and on the cover of TV
first book of photographs, Four Seasons of Racing, was published
in 1998. Livingston lives in Saratoga Springs, New York.
