WELLINGTON, Florida, Feb. 6–Bob Langrish, whose photography around the world has produced more than 100 books about horses, is back in Wellington with a rare honor from Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, a Member of the British Empire.
For the globe trotting Bob, Wellington will add more images to his archives of more than 400,000 images, including from six Olympics.
Just a week before arriving in Wellington to cover jumping and dressage, Bob was in Australia shooting pictures of the famous “brumbies,” feral horses roaming free in the Outback. Wherever horses run free, including some of the most out of the way places on the globe, Bob has gone to there to record their lives.
He works for top equestrian magazines in more than 20 countries.
In the 2011 New Year Honors by the Queen, Bob became one of only four photographers in history to be awarded a M.B.E.–officially called The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
Bob joins all four Beatles, tennis stars Rod Laver and Ken Rosewall and golfer Nick Faldo among others in the order of chivalry that was established almost 100 years ago.
