Royal Ascot Start Gate
Devoted to a career in close proximity to the horse and the wild, Astrid is as much at home on a ranch as she is cruising coastlines of Northern Iceland or celebrating fiestas in rural Spain. From the foothills of the Andes to the plains of America's Wild West and the remotest mountains of Mongolia, Astrid traverses the globe in a bid to understand more about horses and their magnificent native territories. Astrid shares her discoveries through her documentations, some of which can be found in her book The Majesty of the Horse, a collaboration with renowned British author Tamsin Pickeral, published in the UK by Harper Collins, 2012.
“I see my work as a photographer and artist as relevant in today’s animal kingdom. I see the need to elicit emotion within mankind by drawing them into my images where they can begin to understand the intelligent emotions of animals and how critical it is that we, as humans, understand this and that this knowledge spreads so that they might have a better future.
My portraits are largely dynamic, realistic representations of animals – in particular, horses. I work intimately, taking the time to build a rapport with my subjects. In the wild this is less possible but understanding that the animals I am photographing will be aware of my presence and fully assertive is in itself of relevance and a relationship that defines the final portrait I create. A portrait is, by definition, a collaboration between subject and artist and the resulting piece is a representation of sentience, of beauty, of power, of history. I want to give animals the opportunity to share their stories; to connect unknowingly with global audiences where the language of images provides no barrier and thus help to conserve and preserve the sentient souls of the animal kingdom.”
ART is is objective, its allows YOU to love what YOU choose.
With that in mind my aim is to produce work that “offers you something different”
Something exclusive and special to you.
All commissions are deeply personal creations that require a significant amount of emotion and collaboration with the client.
Composition, Lighting, Colour, Mood, Intensity, Message… these just a few of the elements that help me create the final piece of work.
I want you to be excited to show your friends, and if I can achieve that I am happy.
Finally for your assurance. I only use the finest quality and most robust materials allowing your ART to stay in your family for centuries.
Not everyone can afford an original piece. So with that in mind I knew I needed to find a way to create vibrant authentic and outstanding quality reproductions.
I am happy to say that the quality control in our limited edition pieces is second to none.
