In the Camargue region of southern France, where the two arms of the Rhone river embrace the delta at the edge of the Mediterranean, an ancient breed of horse has made a wild region home. The gray horses have a stamina and agility that have earned them a reputation as a hardy working breed. These horses are the traditional mounts of the gardians, the Camargue cattlemen that herd the black bulls used in bullfighting in the region.
John Stephen Hockensmith captured the majesty of the rugged Camargue horses on his trip to the region in 2017. These romantic images are each limited to 250 impressions, numbered and signed by the artist.
