Horses have been intertwined in my life as long as I can remember. After the recent passing of my horse I turned back to photographing our wild mustangs as a way to re-connect with these beautiful animals. America's mustangs are protected under The Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971, but today in an effort to control the population the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is rounding horses off our public lands. These efforts come with much controversy how to properly and humanely manage our cherished mustangs.
While these horses are stuck in the crossfire of an emotional and controversial struggle, I encourage you to take interest in our mustangs and help preserve their place in our lands. Through these images I share intimate moments of them in their natural state of being, free. Our wild horses are living symbols of the American West and these images are a tribute to them.
Using a 19th century process these prints are handmade in pure platinum. This alternative printing process has a unique luminosity with wide mid-tones and open shadows, allowing the images to almost glow. Platinum is the most chemically stable metal found in nature and will preserve these photographs of our wild horses for centuries to come. There is only one unique platinum print and one artist proof of each image making them just as precious as the moments they document.
