“There is a strong connection between wild horses
and the American identity. As I travel the Western states tracking and photographing the American mustangs, my aim is to create artwork

and tell the stories that evoke that connection.
To this end, there is a sense of both the real and the mythological in my images. Visual narratives through which people can see the wild horses in a different way

- and may actually see themselves more clearly in the process.”

~ Maria Marriott, Wild Horse Photographer

"Maria's work evokes such a huge emotional response from people when they see it. The compositions and technique are phenomenal.
But the actual personification of human emotions
that her shots capture are universal and go right to the heart." 
- Sara Robertson, JBGallery

IMAGINE STANDING on the top of a small mountain, overlooking a vast expanse of American wilderness, a largely dry plain with the occasional water hole in the distance. You see a series of small dots on the horizon, which could be rocks, bushes, or cattle.

But lifting your binoculars, you see

a herd of mustangs.
