Filmmaker and photographer Julien Guntz turns the every day moments of world class riders into incredible, satisfying works of art.
The backstage area of an event like the CSI5* Show Jumping Nations Cup event in Rome Italy is rarely witnessed by the everyday equestrian. In some ways, it’s all very much the same as any of us — the buckets, the grooming, the waiting. And in other ways it’s beyond our imagination — the photographers, the fans, the horses worth so much they’re practically priceless.
Filmmaker Julien Guntz allows us a glimpse into both sides of that world through his work. He masterfully captures both the joy and awe of equestrian celebrity, but also the long quiet moments of a horse show. The whole universe that exists solely in support of those 90 seconds in the ring of complete exhilaration.
