HORSE IMAGES | AUTOPILOT
"Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Early evening. I have been to this location for the past 5 to 6 years. I know what the weather conditions will be like, the smell in the air, the mosquitoes, the muck water, how the horses will run through the water, etc. Here, for the most part, I functioned on autopilot. I don't think about the environment or how to take the photographs, things happen, and I come back with decent looking images. I knew I was not growing anymore at this location, familiarity had made me comfortable but I still just continued without making an effort to change. Before I left for this trip, a friend of mine and I were having dinner at a restaurant in NYC. She asked, “what are you going to do differently this time?” It was as though someone stabbed me with a dagger. She was right; I was coming back with similar looking photographs and nothing different.
I consciously made a significant effort to change things around and not function on autopilot to achieve this photograph. Since then, I do my best to improve my daily routines. I don’t like all the results, but I love having variety in my life now. "
Photographing horses is such an honor I feel so lucky. Sometimes I can't get over how real they look when our printer prints and mounts them on non-glare plexiglass, they come back to life again. At our art gallery in New York City, we hold some huge pictures of equestrian photography of horses from Camargue and North Carolina, Stallions or Mare at times in color and most of the time black and white.
Watch the Camargue Horse short film.
Travel with us and have a great experience photographing the horses of Camargue.
