Africa, and beyond.
The exhibition will comprise portraits from her travels to Sable Island and
California travels to showcase animal strength and spirit, displaying horses in their habitats,

the project emphasizes on the larger contexts in which the horses exist, and the
environmental, political and economic pressures shaping their future.
