New Series Released – Band of Rebels: White Horses of Camargue

Drew Doggett’s studio is thrilled to announce the release of a new series entitled Band of Rebels: White Horses of Camargue.

Drew Doggett’s Studio is thrilled to announce the release of a new series entitled Band of Rebels : White Horses of Camargue. Following his award-winning series from Sable Island, Drew continues his documentation of wild horses in Camargue, France where he photographed (and filmed) the region’s majestic, wild animals against the minimal and monotone backdrop of water and land.


Highly identifiable for their prehistoric lineage dating back to the 1500s, the horses of Camargue are best known for their all-white color and bold features. Besides the horse’s distinct makeup, Drew also documented the textural effects of the horses running through the mud, dirtying their pristine coats and creating a painterly finish that referenced modern art.


For other images, he chose to focus on the relationships between the horses, finding a clear hierarchy in their nature. The quiet and tender moments in between the horses’ interactions are another component of this series.


The contrast between the horses’ strength and confidence, as is evident through defined musculature and a sense of pride that exudes from their posture, and the calm of the background is undeniable; they seem to be blissfully unaware of this stark dichotomy yet have complete ownership of the land around them.


Drew also released a video documenting another angle of his journey, in-part focusing on the group of tightly-knit ‘cowboys’ who have carried on the noble tradition of looking after these horses since the 1500s. The caretakers, known as the Gardians, Brotherhood of Camargue Horsemen or ‘cowboys of the Riviera,’ face oft-harsh living conditions and an isolating environment with little financial reward.
