WILD HEARTS

 

For the last  four years I have been travelling around the UK photographing for my passion project called ‘Wild Hearts’. This is a self funded personal project which focuses on Britain’s native rare breed horses and ponies.  Spending time photographing the semi-wild ponies has been an absolute pleasure, in particular, observing the harmonious way in which they co-exist with their human neighbours, exhibiting in equal measure an endearing curiosity and a fiercely wild spirit. “I am fascinated by the strength and power as well as the vulnerability of these majestic animals.” I hope that Wild Hearts will raise the profile of our native breeds who have grazed and shaped our land for hundreds of years – some of which are facing possible extinction.

 

My book is not a documentary photography book with information about our native breeds as there are plenty of amazing books which educate and document our native breeds. With a passionate message of conservation at its heart, the project’s aim is to show people the heart and soul of these wonderful breeds and to encourage people to support these vulnerable breeds, either by protecting them in their natural environment or by buying a registered pony; a step which could help save these rare breeds.

My aim was to complete the project within a year! I naively thought that this was a do-able task! But juggling my work commitments, family life and the impact of Covid has meant that my project has taken a very extended deadline to being complete by 2022! Once complete there will be a gallery show and the photographs and photo-encaustic artwork will be collated into a stunning fine art book. I have released a small selection of prints to give you a little flavour of what’s to come!

So far my project has won me numerous awards including:

 British institue of Professional Photography – 2019 Merit Award 

 British institue of Professional Photography – 2019 1st Place Award 

 British institue of Professional Photography 2021 –  North West & North East Photographer of the Year
