Not just horse play
Jayne Odell’s acclaimed equine photography captures the home of racing in all its work day detail
 Jayne Odell (above) a recently made Fellow with the Royal Photographic Society, has been taking pictures for 15 years and mainly concentrates on
monochrome landscape and coastal subjects.
She says: “Moving to Newmarket in 2016 unleashed a passion for equine photography and the ‘clockwork’ daily routine of the town. I’ve continued my love of working in black and white, and now photograph beautiful, atmospheric images in the local landscape – capturing the unique rhythm of the town.”
For the past four years she has been
building a body of work titled, ‘At the end of our garden’. The work, a panel of 21 black and white images, depicts emotive moments, behind the scenes portraits of horse racing with the trainer Charlie Fellowes and his team.
“It’s a project that has captivated me,
and I feel lucky that I’ve been welcomed into their daily lives at the yard,” she says. “For this panel, I have just been awarded a Fellowship with the RPS – their highest accolade in photographic distinction. Of only 750 Fellows worldwide, I am now honoured to be one.”
