Tori Gagne Photography - Minneapolis Fine Art Photographer

Moonlit Dance

The story of the horse has a long legacy in art, mythology, war, literature and more. My photographs intend to convey the many qualities a horse embodies; wildness, freedom, wisdom, power, connection, spirituality and to express the memory of this unique mark horses have made on the hearts and lives of humans. Humans have evolved side by side with the horse and forged a very unique relationship. I created this series to convey the horse in a more abstract magical dreamlike manner expressing the unique qualities the horse intrinsically embodies. I hope my images will spark a fleeting memory, story or dream. 

My personal relationship with a rescued racehorse has led me into the unique world of the horse. The horse lives in a highly intuitive world of the senses, a world we don't often access as humans. To enter the their world you must be calm, centered and free of tension. This is a place where I am fully present and free of the trappings of daily existence. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to honor this remarkable creature through my art.

A portion of the proceeds from this work supports organizations involved in the protection and sanctuary of the US wild horse population which is currently under threat from many forces.
