After charming us with his adorable photos of the underbellies of cats, Lithuanian photographer Andrius Burba is back with a new series of Underlook photographs. This time, he’s captured the underbelly of our equine friends with Under-Horse.
Each horse is set against a stark black background, which allows us to focus on the striking, muscular beauty of the animals. Leaping gleefully, it’s impossible not to feel the energy that radiates off the images. However, photographing these large, graceful horses wasn’t an easy feat.

These behind the scenes photographs capture the complex setup needed for Under-Horse.
In the end, the two month creative process was well worth the final results! Next, Burba plans to tackle a more dangerious animal—tigers.
