Welcome to the forty-fourth instalment of our weekly series: The Kings of Kickstarter. From salmon jerky to tron bikes, our last Kings brought some serious design to the Roundtable. As per usual, NUBI has procured 5 Kings (and of course one jester) and presented them below. Ranked in descending order, only one can claim the title of Supreme Overlord.create
#5. EQUS – JASON JOHN PIETRA
“I just wanted to work on a subject that fascinated me, movement and the natural world.”
“There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” – Winston Churchill.
Never was a truer word spoken, or maybe I’ve just got a thing for horses; either way John Pietra’s images are astounding. The sleek and powerful lines of a horse naturally draw the eye and it is without question one of nature’s most impressive critters.
Those aesthetics increased tenfold when a busy background is relinquished and the horse is dramatically lit. Originally intending to create a 10-12 image gallery, John soon realised when he looked at the first batch of images that it would no longer be feasible. He had begun something much larger, so a print book was the natural progression.
