This photograph is from the Collection "Discovering the Horses of Sable Island".

Sable Island - a narrow, crescent-shaped ribbon of sand and rock off the coast of Nova Scotia - often called the ‘graveyard of the Atlantic’ due to its history of shipwreck. This remote island is home to little more than the herd of 400 wild horses that roam freely over the island’s 26 rugged miles. 

The resulting body of work, both intimate and expansive, captures the sometimes difficult realities of the island and offers a portrait of the relationship between these horses and the environment that supports them. Although the landscape is harsh — fresh water is scarce, and bone-chilling sea winds thwart the growth of any vegetation taller than dune grass — the wild horses of Sable Island have adapted to thrive in their unusual habitat. The only land mammals on Sable, they know no fear and have no predators other than their harsh living environments - the shipwrecked horses of Sable Island live in this impossible place entirely on their own terms. Entirely unmanaged and unimpeded by humans, the wild horses of Sable Island embody a unique freedom and independence.
