About this newspaper

it is an exploration of the system used by the wider equine community to identify horses through recording their markings and features. The system was inspired by the processes developed by Bertillon for the identification of people. This classificatory system operates in parallel with a separate market system
of horse identification that is used exclusively by the Traveller Community. Barr’s photographs echo the fast-paced modes of speech used by the Traveller Community.
