The Brooke and Richard Dunwoody Exhibition

News St Martin – Talking Points

Monday 6 January 2014

The Gallery in the Crypt Exhibition

Monday 6 January – Sunday 2 February 2014

The challenges of the global animal charity – the Brooke, through the lens of talented photographer – Richard Dunwoody MBE.

The Brooke has been teaching respect, compassion and care for working horses, donkeys and mules since 1934 when Dorothy Brooke first rescued the old and broken war horses in Egypt.  The rest, as they say, is history and the Brooke now operates in 11 countries. 

2014 is the 80th anniversary year for this extraordinary international animal welfare charity. To celebrate the occasion, Richard Dunwoody has married two passions – photography and horses – to capture the diverse challenges facing these hard working animals, which are the true engines of the developing world.

Through beautiful and captivating photography he will take visitors on a very personal journey through the highs and lows of life for these noble working equines and their owners whose livelihoods are so inextricably linked.  Out of even the most desperate of situations, visitors will appreciate the inspiring and dedicated work of one of the most understated yet leading animal charities.

Come and share Richard Dunwoody’s personal experiences of the Brooke at work, feel the emotions he has captured through the lens and be uplifted and moved by the stories behind the images.

Proceeds from the sale of the exhibition brochures, postcards and limited edition prints from the St Martin-in-the-Fields shop will go towards the Brooke’s valuable work.
