Friend and fellow photographer John Goto has described the universal quality of Horsfield's images: 'Horsfield' s people are singular and yet in them I recognise myself, I identify with them. These people contemplate the same things that we all do: their bodies, their sex uality, love memories and death ... in these images we recognise in the voice of another our own experience, our joy, fear or whatever and through this bond we are saved from that existential isolation which threatens to envelop us.'
