Susan Burns has been photographing horses as a passionate hobby for over 15 years. She studied photography
at the Art Institute in Chicago, but largely she is self-taught, having travelled the world capturing images
of horses, african wildlife and indigenous cultures. But it is the image of the running horse in the wild
that most inspires her.
"There is something magical about observing a horse that is free to roam, unencumbered by saddles,
harnesses and rider... and if I can capture that essence of complete freedom that the horse represents,
I am quite moved."
Over the years, she has travelled throughout her home state of Colorado, and to Wyoming, Montana,
New Mexico and Utah.. off the beaten track, to BLM preserves where mustangs still run free. But
this is fast disappearing and she hopes, through her photographs, to instill a collective consciousness
about the need to preserve our wild horses and our wild lands.
Susan's work has largely been through private commission assignments... and this year, she is
partnering with renown western and fine art photographer and teacher, Bobbie Goodrich...
for their 'THE WEST, REDEFINED" workshops, based in their Santa Fe studio and gallery.
