Carina Mac Laughlan
For me art is my whole life and of great importance to cross life by magnifying the beauty.
Carina Mac Laughlan is an Equine Fine Art Photographer, fully devoted to the horses brought to light in her pictures. She offers them healing, respect and a peaceful existence. Carina has made a pact with these horses.
This Scottish woman moved her Clan of horses to Burgundy/France, 13 years ago. Carina’s Clan? A herd of eight stallions and a few vagabond horses that she was able to rescue.
Renowned worldwide, awarded by several international contests, including Ar(t) horse Saumur /France in 2008 and 2009 and the international photography competition of Equestrian Art Moscow /Russia in 2009.
She is celebrated for her uncommon approach to horse photography. Creations of this distinctive artist feature close up pictures of wonderful inspiring horses, sunlit only pictures, taken without zoom or wide angle lens.
Carina reveals the stunning stallions’ natural beauty, explores their souls, reveals their essence and reminds us that horse is man’s noblest conquest, a conquest which requires respect and awareness. Her artwork has been published in several Equestrian magazines worldwide, and also selected to create advertising posters for horse exhibitions and advertisements in magazines.
“The horses that inspired these photos are part of my clan, not that of my name but that of my heart. If these horses have become my companions, it is because their paths crossed with mine the day when they became too much or excessive, too nervous, too cumbersome, too emotionally disturbed. As a child, I thought that to love horses you had to ride them and it is only after long years of obstinate riding I finally understood my mistake. From sitting on their backs, I have come to lie down at their feet.
“Clan of Vagabonds – Confessions of rebel horses” is a series of numbered, limited edition photographs, which constitute an excursion into the horses’ world of untamed expressions. Through her artwork, Carina allows these horses to relate a part of their true and fundamental nature. ”
