One of the most photographed animals in the world is the horse. As well as being versatile, intelligent, and full of character, horses are also highly photogenic. This makes them ideal subjects for decorative wall prints in the form of artistic horse photography.
The animal’s muscular torso, strong neck and incredible mane of hair give it a majestic presence, even when standing still. When in full gallop, its graceful yet powerful movements are a joy to behold.
Photographing the wild white horses of Camargue
I saw this for myself when exploring the marshlands of Camargue on the French Mediterranean coast. The white wild Camargue horses roam free, and I was awestruck as I watched a group playfully race each other along the beach.
As a passionate photographer, I was quick to take my camera out and capture the exquisite moments, some of which you can see presented in this post. All of which are available to purchase.
There’s just something incredibly special about these beautiful animals.
Why equine photography is so popular
Horses and humans have shared a close bond for more than 5,000 years. It was the horse that accompanied men into battle, worked the land with farmers, and took explorers and merchants across whole continents.
Today, at least in the West, the horse is primarily a leisure companion. In Britain alone, there are 374,000 horse-owning households. Many, many more worldwide. Little surprise, therefore, that at the time of writing there were
over 30 million horse photos on Instagram.
They have a wild and unbreakable spirit but are trusting, loving, and devoted to those who treat them well. This combination and their natural beauty makes them irresistible.
The beauty of the equine form
I love taking photos of these animals, especially in the wild where they roam free like in Camargue.
Artistic horse photography showcases the majesty of the equine form and transforms it into a work of art, ideal for interiors of any kind. The graceful curvatures of the horse’s powerful torso and head, especially in full flow, make it a timeless and all-encompassing theme to match with numerous décor schemes.
For households or businesses where the horse is a cherished animal, equine photographic art prints make a perfect decorative accompaniment.
Horse photo prints for home interiors
Many young girls fall in love with horses and horse-riding. This passion often remains long into adulthood. Photographic wall prints of wild horses will make an excellent addition to a hallway, living room, daughter’s bedroom, or home study.
For a horse-loving family, horse wall art provides a fabulous talking point when guests visit. Art, in general, is an excellent way to display your family’s interests and identity.
Horse photo prints for commercial interiors
Horse photography also provides beautiful decorative possibilities for many different commercial settings. There are the obvious places where horse photo prints will fit well, including horse riding centres, equine equipment stores and veterinary surgeries.
Yet artistic horse photography can suit just about any commercial setting. If you want a space to subtly imbue the qualities of natural power, strength, and vitality, then horse art is ideal. Such prints are perfect for corporate offices, gyms and professional coaching centres.
Horse photo prints available to buy
Horses, like few other animals, combine both overwhelming power with a gentle and loveable nature. This combination makes them ideal as companions to humans but also as a focus for artistic photography.
