Ezekiel’s Horse presents a distinguished series of images, whereby Carter turns his eye to the horse. These photographs, all part of the permanent collection of the Wittliff Gallery of Southwestern and Mexican Photography at SWT, were featured in a fall 2000 exhibition at the Wittliff Gallery and have subsequently traveled to other venues in the U.S.
