The photographs speak for themselves in this black and white coffee table masterpiece... Apart from the stirring introduction from writer Robin Lane Fox, the work of the young photographer stands alone.....Each of Lockhart's pieces has a resonance, the character of the horses, hounds, country and people fairly vibrating from every page. Her capturing of the mood of the day, from hazy dawns to crisp afternoons, is delightful...anyone who's ever been in the hunting field will find much to recognise and love in this book. Equally, for those of us who love the countryside, horses, hounds or people will discover much art over which to linger. Amateur Photographer: 'Lockhart's pictures cover the gamut of hunting activity; a line of hounds, noses quivering, setting off in snow carpeted woodland; steam coming off horses; competitors in a Best Dressed Huntsman competition; a young follower dwarfed by a huge hay bale; huntsmen relaxing in the pub afterwards....Whether you support hunting or not, it is an undeniably photogenic activity and Lockhart's pictures unquestionably do it justice.'

"'Amanda Lockhart's stunning black and white photographs, taken over the last five years, show foxhunting as it really is: kennelmen, farriers, hunt tailors, bootmakers, hatters, the hounds, huntservants and followers of all shapes and sizes, in their daily tasks and, of course, hunting.'" * The Spectator *
"'Amanda Lockhart's photographs are works of art. The Art of the Chase is a testament to the timeless nature of foxhunting even in today's world. An encouraging introduction by Robin Lane Fox and images that warm the heart will make eyes misty and your resolve stiffen'" * The Field *
"The Art of the Chase will transport any aficionado immediately to the sights, sounds and smells and bonhomie of a hunting day....Anyone who treasures a hunting day or loves the sight of houndwork, which Robin Lane Fox calls the 'heart of the sport' in his introduction, should buy this book' " * Country Life *
