Wild Horse Photography and Advocacy

Speaker: Carol Walker’s passion for photography started at an early age, with animals as her favorite subjects. She studied literature and photography as an undergraduate at Smith College and after graduating continued her education in photography by studying portraiture and nature photography. In 2000, Carol started her business Living Images by Carol Walker, specializing in photographing horses. As she followed several herds of wild horses in Wyoming, Colorado, and Montana, she became aware of how precarious their situation on public lands has become. Since then, she has dedicated herself to educating people with her photographs and stories about wild horses. Carol sees her artwork as an ideal vehicle for enhancing and expressing her advocacy for wild horses and the proceeds from the sales of her artwork and books fund her mission. As one of the leading advocates for America’s wild horses, she dedicates herself to stopping their roundup and removal from America’s public lands and keeping them wild and free.

Program: Carol will talk about how she finds, follows and photographs wild horses in Colorado and Wyoming as well as how advocacy supports her photography, and her photography aids in protecting her subjects. She will also outline places to go to photograph wild horses, as well as offering some guidelines and suggestions for photographing them. She will present a slideshow of her work as well.
