Horses by Tony Strombeg

Horses, just horses, sans riders, saddles and bridles— unless they’re in a stall, it’s not something you see much anymore. But this is precisely what Tony Stromberg, equine photographer extraordinaire, gives us. He photographs these graceful animals in a pure and natural way that no other photographer can match. And now, his most beautiful shots are collected in one breathtaking photo book: Horses. Whether they’re in stalls, in the paddock, or in fields and woods—Stromberg employs a perfect balance between light and shadow, unique composition, and a superlative feel for the right moment to make these majestic animals come alive, creating an authentic homage to a glorious creature. However, his pictures go far beyond merely depicting horses’ beauty. Stromberg, a former advertising photographer, had his first encounters with horses in the 1990s at a time when he was suffering from terrible burnout himself. But in these gentle companions, he found, in his words, teachers and soulmates who helped him regain a sense of peace. The deep connection to horses he has built since then is clearly evident in his photos, which is what makes them so special.

After building a successful career as an advertising photographer, TONY STROMBERG followed his inner desire to find peace in nature and moved into fine art photography. More than 20 years ago, he decided to change his focus to equine photography, and he has since built up a substantial archive of fantastic shots. His studio is in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition to the many photography workshops he and his team lead all over the world, he enjoys spending time with horses in nature.
