THE LEGEND OF FREEDOM
TOLD BY HORSES
THE BRAVE ONE
The more subjects you have in a photo, the more difficult it is for their position to be harmonious and for the composition to appeal to the eye. When photographing people, it's easy to ask them to move around. But with animals, that's another thing! This photograph has not been prepared. After days of working with these beasts, I gained their trust and was able to share many unique moments with them. Like the one or the horses gathered, facing me with the bravest one of the group standing proud at their head. For these kind of photos all I would have hoped would have been that no horse's head was cut off. How lucky I was to have them alternated perfectly between light and dark. And I sure wouldn't have been so proud of this take if the scene had been arranged. I had about ten seconds to choose my composition before they moved, and I would have made the same choice with 10 minutes in front of this scene...
... Before starting this collection, I watched several '' making of '' videos of horse photos and I found it very disappointing to see that several photos were arranged with a team causing the slightest of situations to fly a drone to scare the horses and make them run, water the horses to have drops of water in the photo. Push the horse in front of a huge projector or screen for more light or a neutral background. Watching these videos, I found that these horses were pitiful and that this was no way of honoring the freedom they represent. To create this collection, it was just me and a herd on an acre of snow, no bait, no drone, with only patience and determination. And yet I captured unparalleled images. When you choose to be true to your values, the road is sometimes longer but the destination is much better.
