On my way to Germany a few months ago, I spent the morning in New York and was drawn like a magnet into the Samuel Owen Gallery to better view Roberto Dutesco's larger than life wild horse images up close and personal. These mammoth photos of one of the world's last herd of wild horses have made the rounds on design blogs for years it seems, but seeing them all together in a large space was pretty great. The gallery gave me Chasing Wild Horses, Roberto's documentary about his personal journey that took him from the life of a top fashion photographer of Victoria Secret beauties and Vogue couture to his ultimate subject: the untouched beauty of Sable Island's wild horses.
This week's fashion inspired post looks to the unexplainable connection we all feel with the mythic quality of wild horses.
