When Gareth McConnell was commissioned by the New York Times to photograph the wild horses of Iceland there was an apocalyptic feeling in the air from the  Russian invasion of Ukraine, food shortages and the climate emergency.

Guided by this feeling and not knowing much about the subject he took two referenve points with him; Edwin Muir's haunting poem The Horses and KLF member and pop shaman Bill Drummond's belief that a cosmic ley line comes Earth in the rifts of Iceland.

Using torches and gels the strange, colourful images enhance the psychedic otherworldliness of the location and make the horses look like "My Little Ponies on Mars".
