"The equestrian lifestyle requires endless dedication, time and commitment. It is a life of earnest labor with no days off. My series, “Off the High Horse,” alludes to the relationship between horses and people, a connection of trust built over centuries. The images share a personal view of intimate interaction with horses, with attention to details and coarse textures. Horses cannot foresee the future. They cannot amend the present by understanding their past. Identifying a moment in time is a challenge for human beings. Surrounding yourself with these animals may lead to a self-awareness to live in the present."
