A longtime favourite getaway for America's most influential families, Cumberland Island, off the Atlantic coast of Georgia, offers breathtaking white sand beaches, rolling dunes, old-growth oak forests, and salt marsh tidal estuaries.
At the centre of it all is a population of horses that has thrived, untouched for generations, within this serene sanctuary.
In Wild Horses of Cumberland Island, photographer Anouk Masson Krantz has captured the dramatic scenery and majestic horses as they have never been seen before.
Her images, taken over the course of a decade, show the remarkable animals in their naturally diverse ecosystems.
A lone horse on a distant beach, four creatures peacefully grazing, a shy animal peering over its shoulder from a brushy thicket...Krantz's long-term documentary study is an intimate reflection not only of Cumberland Island's exceptional beauty and the spirited horses who have made it their home, but of the history and the safekeeping practices that have allowed both to flourish. AUTHOR: Born and raised in France, Anouk Masson Krantz moved to the United States in the late 1990s. She studied photography at the International Center of Photography and has developed several notable bodies of work, including a study on the wild horses of Cumberland Island.
