Overview

The power, grace, and freedom of horses had always resonated deeply with Stromberg. Through his photographs of these magnificent beasts, he sees a way to bridge what he calls “modern life’s disturbing separation between people and nature.” The result is Spirit Horses, showcasing 140 of Stromberg’s extraordinary color portraits of these animals, along with quotations from leading teachers and writers exploring equine wisdom and its intersection with spirituality. The photographs in Spirit Horses were shot in a variety of locales, from wildlife sanctuaries to private ranches to natural habitats in Europe and the western United States. These images — and the accompanying quotes — offer a portrait of horses as profound teachers, giving strength and stability to a world out of balance.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The horse is an icon in many cultures, so it comes as no surprise that it has been the subject of countless art books. Photographer Stromberg traversed the country in search of the "mysterious spirit of the wild horse." The result is this collection of 140 photos, mostly black-and-white and sepia, that fully capture the animal's unsurpassed elegance and strength. A true feast for the eye and a great gift for any horse lover. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
