We're proud to partner with the following photographers who lend their time, talent, and respect to capture wild horses across public lands through a long lens.
All images used on our site are from the below photographers who have generously donated their art to help AWHC educate about America's wild horses and burros.
Kimerlee Curyl has been capturing America's remaining wild horses since 2004. She has developed a highly unique and recognizable style of capturing the truest essence, spirit and rich texture of the horse. It is that style that is sought out by collectors and collaborators around the globe. Unless otherwise stated these images are all of wild horses, owned by no one and created by the very salt of the earth. Images are captured in their element and on their terms, nothing is contrived. These are accounts of their day to day lives living on our vast, yet dwindling public lands.
She has traveled to numerous remote and many times isolated locations, earning her place as one of the leading wild horse fine art photographers in the world. Countless hours have been spent observing and understanding the movements, thoughts and sheer will of the horse.
She is committed to the protection of wildness, her ongoing efforts not only chronicle the freedom of our wild horses on their home territory but more importantly help raise significant awareness for the plight they are continuing to face year after year. Round up after round up. Each collection is the story of a place where wildness still exists...for now.
Kimerlee created a series of Open Edition plant-based, archival, museum quality pigment prints for the American Wild Horse Campaign in which 20% goes directly to our work to Keep Wild Horses Wild.
A trip to the Pine Nut Mountains in Nevada changed Maria's life. It was there where she first laid her eyes on a wild horse - a mustang stallion named "Zorro". Being in the presence of such a majestic creature felt overwhelming, yet peaceful for her. It was at that moment that Maria knew her life would take a turn. She was now joining the voices already fighting for their freedom.
"Mustangs have very strong and complex family bonds with interesting relationships. They are real families, with real feelings for each other. Their courage and strength are demonstrated in their quest for survival daily on the desert plains", says Maria. Her artistic vision is to capture the essence of the wild horses in a very intimate and personal style, enabling you to closely feel their spirit.
All the artist's images were captured in their own environment and on their own terms. Because most people will never have a chance to see these majestic creatures in their lifetimes, it's Maria's desire that, through her photographs, you'll have the opportunity see the beauty and spirit of the wild horse and feel compelled to join her in the quest of preserving their safety and freedom.
20% of the proceeds of any of Maria's prints go directly towards the American Wild Horse Campaign.
