I have always had a fascination with horses which in part stems from my interest in the essential role they played in the development of modern civilizations. At the heart of the relationship between horses and humans is a large paradox. At once a tool in conquests and war because of their tremendous power and capacity for speed, they remain a herd and prey animal. Through photography both inside and outside of the studio, I explore the duality of these flighty yet mighty animals, as well as their relationships with humans, in particular with women whose livelihoods still depend on these animals. Over the past year, I have been documenting Camilla Naprous of the Devil's Horsemen with my film cameras. The Devil's Horsemen is a leading supplier of horses and stunt men and women in the film industry and Camilla is a second generation horse master and leads the company.
My first project: "Aspects of Power, Light and Motion" was subject of a solo exhibition at the Anne Marion gallery in the National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth, Texas in 2017. Recently, two works from my "Devil's Horsemen" project were selected for the 2021 annual juried exhibition at the Photographic Center Northwest.
