For more than 20 years, fashion photographer Roberto Dutesco has been traveling to Sabel Island, a remote island 100 miles off the coast of Nova Scotia, to photograph horses. This windswept island, known as the graveyard of the Atlantic, has been the site of 475 shipwrecks and also home to something extraordinary: a colony of more than 400 wild horses who have managed to survive on this austere terrain, with only sea grass and ponds for sustenance.
“I consider myself a global ambassador for the wild horses of Sabel Island,” says Dutesco. “I wanted to share my experience among the wild horses to people around the world, to show them true wilderness in its primal state, unaware and unafraid of man. I wanted to recreate for others, as nearly as possible, my extraordinary experience, what it was like for me to step onto their untouched land, what it was like for them to see me, and what they would remember from the encounter long afterward.”
