Trevor Mein – Susan Watson Knight
- Retailer Otomys
In 2017 artist and equestrian Susan Knight and photographer Trevor Mein were commissioned by the Melbourne interior design firm Hecker Guthrie to create a series of works for the new Mitchelton Hotel in Nagambie. Susan and Trevor were asked to create images of two stallions standing at Swettenham Stud located a short distance from Mitchelton. The elegant grey racehorse Puissance De Lune and the 2010 Melbourne Cup winner Americain took centre stage. Susan and Trevor were keen to capture the striking beauty and power of these horses, focusing on their remarkable musculature and the varied marks and patterning on their dramatically contrasting coats. Some images were made as the horses were led in the public viewing area, but most were captured as the stallions were left to move freely in their stables.
