À propos de l'auteur (2011)

Maria Short is a photographer, educator and writer. She currently runs photographic workshops in schools and colleges and is a part-time lecturer in photography at the University of Brighton. She has an MA in Sequential Design and her work takes its inspiration from the use of visual metaphors in pictorial story-telling. Much of her photographic practice is built around her knowledge of the equine industry; working to editorial and advertising briefs. Maria's current research work is photographing the use of horses to enrich the lives of disadvantaged teenagers.
