In Pageantry & Performance, The Household Cavalry In A Celebration Of Pictures his unique collection of magnificent full-colour photographs has been presented in a beautiful illustrative self published book.
He captures the magic and spirit behind the world of the Household Cavalry. Minute details such as the intricate uniforms, woven crests and gleaming jackboots create a kaleidoscope of colour and movement, hard work, pride and the harmonious relationship between horse and soldier.
The collection depicts a full year in the life of the cavalry and shows them in all their glory, whether at the Queen's Life Guard or escorting Her Majesty on State occasions. Visually exciting, the project is the result of dedication, spanning over six years. His challenge is to create works of art, whilst still providing an accurate insight into the daily life of this uniquely British treasure.

Plaudits received include:
This is without doubt one of the most visually stunning and spectacularly produced books I have seen in over 25 years of publishing.
~ Julian Deeming, The Penguin Group
Books of this quality are rarely seen. It is the product of uncompromised standards that can only be achieved by the photographer retaining full control, rather than turning to a publisher. Even the cover hidden by the dust jacket is a work of art.
~ Steve Hynes, Editor, Professional Photographer
I have never picked up a more sumptuous book. The quality of photographs and the way they are presented is truly exceptional. It is one of the best examples of photographic art I have ever seen.
~ LBC-Radio, Sandy Toksvig
Such is the response to this audiovisual feast, that the Windsor Festival 2003 has chosen "Pageantry and Performance" as its theme for the festival. The theme of this year's Festival comes from the title of Henry Dallal's beautiful and inspiring journey: Pageantry & Performance.
~ Martin Denny, Festival Director
The individually laminated images which grace its pages are more suited to be framed in gilt to adorn the picture gallery of a palace than lie idly on a coffee-table.
It is a book to be wondered at rather than just perused and those fortunate enough to open its covers will feel guilty not to be wearing silk gloves as they gingerly turn the pages.
A Passionate Photographer
~ Le Figaro Magazine
Pageantry & Performance - was first launched at Windsor Festival in Windsor Castle. An exhibition of his photography was held at The Guildhall. A son et lumiere spectacle of his photography, including images from his book was projected onto the walls of Windsor Castle. This is the first time ever that such a projection has been given permision to be shown on the walls of the royal castle.
Pageantry and Performance is indeed the showpiece of the Windsor Festival: it gave the 11-day arts event the title for its theme as it celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Queen's Coronation and it probably even made history, as red, purple,and blue lights danced across the walls of Windsor Castle for the very first time as spotlights searched the night sky.
