Wild Mustangs

Honorable Mention, Nature: Wildlife, ND Awards

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, Jessica encourages the viewer to take interest in the mustangs and help preserve their place in our lands. Through these images she shares intimate moments of them in their natural state, free. Our wild horses are living symbols of the American West and these images are a tribute to them. 

Using a 19th century platinum print out process, the one of a kind 8x10 platinum editions are handmade. The scarcity of platinum and these unique prints is meant to parallel brief moments spent with these wild horses whose future is uncertain.
