Horse IdentificationFor seven years Christopher Barr has been photographing the world of Irish horse fairs. The work explores the interrelationship between man and animal, but this body of work has a deeper resonance. The system was inspired by the processes developed by Bertillon for the identification of people. The argot used when engaged in discussing horses with Travellers during fairs has directly influenced the aesthetic and narrative flow of the series. As well as emphasising the role of the horse within the life of the Traveller Community. This body of work also explores the concepts of identity and alienation. Barr's horses are an allegory for the Traveller Community in which he moved, a metaphor for an identity being gradually eroded by the modernisation of a nation.
