A herd of height stallions and a few vagabond horses that she was able to rescue.
“As far as I can remember, horses have always fascinated me. I started to ride and take pictures as a child and have never stopped since. A lifetime living with and taking care of horses allows me proximity with them as to obtain a special and unusual trust from my models for photographic work.
The horses that inspired these photos are part of my clan, not that of my name but that of my heart. If these horses have become my companions, it is because their paths crossed with mine the day when they became too much or excessive, too nervous, too cumbersome, too emotionally disturbed. As a child, I thought that to love horses you had to ride them and it is only after long years of obstinate riding I finally understood my mistake. From sitting on their backs, I have come to lie down at their feet”
