ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Long Shot is a photographic series that captures the speed, intensity, stamina and raw power of thoroughbred racing. At the track, by the time you make it out to the stands, all you experience is the sound. The warning call from the trumpet to let you know the horses are on the track. Then, the race. Through the megaphone, excitement builds as the race progresses. It is a rush, and it happens so fast. This series celebrates the poetic nuances of horse racing that happen within a fraction of a second. All photos were taken at Vancouver’s historical Hastings Racecourse, a place where Yap would visit fondly as a child.
