The Wild Horses of Sable Island

“I wish to bring my experience among the wild horses of Sable Island to people around the world, to show them true wilderness in its primal state, unaware and unafraid of man. I wish 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.”
—Roberto Dutesco, Photographer

All Dutesco’s photography comes from the old ways of camera, negative, development and printing techniques. New technologies, such as chromogenic printing, are incorporated in his work, however the original is always a negative that has been scanned to accommodate special printing techniques, such as metallic prints, platinum prints or oversize prints not available in silver gelatin printing.
