Fairytale-Like Pictures Of Horses Living In Extreme Iceland Conditions




There is a mystical quality about snow and ice, which is perhaps is what makes Iceland such a captivating location. New York City based photographer and filmmaker Drew Doggett, managed to capture a sliver of this magic in his new photo series ‘In the Realm of Legends,’ documenting the wild horses that rove the island.

Doggett was constantly surrounded by artistic muses, lodged on a farm with hundreds of horses. However, he found inspiration not only from his environment but from a more unlikely source – folklore tales. It doesn’t take an art critic to see how the story of the mythological god, Odin’s, spirit animal, the eight-legged Icelandic horse Sleipnir, sparked this photographer’s imagination. In fact, there are some who believe these enchanting horses are the “real-world” descendants of the mythical creature.

For this series, Doggett strayed from his usual black and white medium and chose to shoot in color. “The light created brilliant hues that added a sublime texture to the entire series,” he told My Modern Met, “Coupled with the contrast between the landscape and the horses, I knew this body of work demanded color.”
