This hand-bound, opulent work of art celebrates the artistry of world-renowned equine photographer Robert Vavra and his favorite models, the Andalusians of Cárdenas in Spain. Lush photographs showcase these remarkable animals in amazing settings throughout the 500-year-old Moorish estate – whether strolling majestically in the courtyard or frolicking in the ocean surf. Page after page of this stunning gallery features photos by five acclaimed photographers under the magical direction of Vavra. Also showcases images inside of the Cárdenas home.

















      One of the most gorgeous books to come out this season is a masterpiece by Robert Vavra, universally acclaimed as the premier photographer of horses.


In "Cardenas: Horses and Home", Vavra, the author-photographer of more than 35 books translated into eight languages, ventures forth into a new arena--the extraordinary home of Miguel Angel Cardenas and his wife, Carmen, of Prado Castellano, offering insight into an aristocratic world seldom seen by outsiders. 

The Spanish stallions and mares of Cardenas are of the finest quality and can be found from Madrid to Munich and Hollywood to Mexico City. But you won't find another home to compare with this one elsewhere on the planet...

Lovers of magnificent horses and homes will be doubly thrilled with the breathtaking beauty shown in these pages.

For the past 25 years of his career, Robert Vavra has delighted us with his glorious portraits of the world's most beautiful horses. With the passing of time, his powers of persuasion  regarding what it is about these creatures that deeply touches  the horse lover's soul, have not diminished, nor have they sunk into boring repetition. To the contrary,  he repeatedly finds fresh and new ways to thrill us by capturing with his lens all the magic and mystery of equines. His latest book, "Cardenas: Horse and Home," is no exception.
