To make sure I was the right fit for the project they sent me one horse and a necklace that Calder had made as a gift for his wife. I had just one day to explore and photograph these objects. It’s hard to describe how a little red horse can be so inspiring and fun and easy to take pictures of! There was something so dynamic and a alive in this small object fashioned from wood and rusty wire.
I then met with Arne Glimcher at Pace to talk about the project. Everyone had loved the images and the project was a go. We were set to start mid September 2001. But then 9/11 happened, and unfortunately the project never materialized.
