I first visited the Camargue two years ago and was instantly struck by the beauty, agility and strength of the Camargue horses. Greatly inspired, I have since returned many times to get to know this ancient breed better and to photograph them for this portfolio. They are incredibly hard working with great speed and stamina and capable of enduring extreme weather. However, spending such memorable time with them and their guardians exposed another side to these formidable creatures — they are intelligent, curious, loving, caring and so very gentle.I want this study of work to expose these qualities and I hope my images share with the viewer the emotion I felt behind the camera photographing these special intimate moments.
