About the work

This photograph was taken at Assateague Island, a remote and windswept barrier island in Maryland. There are over three hundred wild horses that live there. They have their own complex social structure and have been described as both tough and beautiful. As a visitor to the island, I was most fascinated by how close one could occasionally get to these horses in their natural habitat. Although this horse was aware that I was there, he did not overtly acknowledge my presence. I had a most unusual vantage point to observe him for just a few moments. As I watched him grazing in front of me I was mesmerized by the beautiful shape of his ears, the graceful line of his mane and an overwhelming desire to touch him. But shortly after I took this photograph, he suddenly turned, galloped across the salt marshes and joined a small group of horses on the beach.
