Through faithful dedication to her craft and passion for horses, Maria Marriott brings the spirit of the American wild to your surroundings with wild horse photography that transports viewers to the wide open landscapes where American wild horses roam free.


Maria's signature use of a monochromatic palette and an intimate, minimalistic approach to her compositions, helps her tell compelling, emotional stories about these iconic creatures and their relationship to the American identity. The result is a collection evocative images that ignites the imagination.

Maria's online gallery features wild horse photography that portrays the American mustangs in their natural environment – the wide open spaces of our Western landscapes, intense interactions and family bonds, the natural beauty of free-flowing manes and graceful movements. Each image has been carefully curated to transport you into a world that few have experienced or even know exists… the quiet, rugged beauty of the remote public lands that the American wild horses inhabit. Spaces that need to be protected and preserved for the mustangs and for future generations…

DISCOVER THE RAW BEAUTY of American wild horses uniquely interpreted through Maria’s intimate and minimalistic style. Her choice of a black and white color palette, and the use of a limited number of composition elements in her wild horse photography, draws the viewer’s attention to the core of her work - the emotion each image evokes.

RUGGED DESERT PLAINS, a thick blanket of dust, and deeply rutted trails wind through hundreds of square miles leading to the base of mountains. It is in these inhospitable surroundings that we discover the Onaqui Mountain wild horses...untamed, true symbols of strength and freedom.

THE FUSION of fine art and wild horse photography produces an unforgettable blend of raw beauty and emotion. At the heart of this artistic marriage lies the allure of wild horses, symbolizing beauty, power and freedom. In Living Color presents powerful images of the American wild horses as experienced through Maria’s lens.

STARK CONTRAST and absence of detail… silhouettes leave viewers a wide open door for imagination. Using silhouettes and a black and white palette for this wild horse photography series, the breathtaking landscapes where the American mustangs live are brought to life.
