[Curatorial description - National Media Museum - December 2011]
 
To produce this photogravure of a horse Eugene used an etching needle to scratch lines onto the surface of the negative, creating a hybrid between a purely photographic image and an etching. Eugene often used graphic techniques to alter a photograph. He would change or replace a background, reduce aspects of the photograph to anonymity or apply highlights with paint.
