"Djerba. Tunisia

(The island of Dreams)"

In 2018 I traveled to the Island of Djerba ( The Island of Dreams). Djerba is the legendary beautiful home of the lotus-eaters, where Ulysses paused during the course of the Odyssey. I stayed in the oldest village in Tunisia. called Erriadh.


 In 2014 street art artists from all around the world decided to transform the village into an open-sky museum. I was transfixed by the blue doors the wall art and the amazing arab/berber horses.  This book is about that experience.

The movement and motion of the horse first attracted me to the racetrack. My curiosity about the hidden world behind the vibrant colors and elegant athleticism of both the horse and the rider - that and my earliest memories of being drawn to horses. I've tried to imply the sounds of the horses' breath  on the track before dawn, the blaring music coming out the barns, and horses' joy and passion in movement in these still images of this world, so mythic and mysterious to me. But this book is really about the film I see in my mind's eye - complete with the motion, sounds,and smells of the track when I close my eyes.
