Monica Stevenson’s fine art photography focuses on a subject forever integral to her life: horses. Her haunting black-and-white equine photographs gracefully capture horses in all of their disciplines, highlighting their relationship with their human companions and the environment. Her images are rich in feeling and texture, reflecting the enduring romance of equestrian tradition. Stevenson’s series include images of snow polo in St. Moritz, summer polo in Montreal and Argentina, hunter/jumpers from California, rejoneadores from Mexico, and wild horses in France. Current work focuses on abstracted still lifes and a seasonal collection of her horse Zoe hand-painted in surreal colors.
Both Stevenson’s commercial and fine art images reflect her singular vision and creativity. Her passionate and elegant photographs have already caused quite a stir in equine circles worldwide, with the series being exhibited in galleries such as the Mercedes Benz Gallery in NYC, the Katonah Museum of Art, New River Fine Art in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., Julie Nester Gallery in Park City, Utah, and as part of the permanent collection in the Focus Gallery, London. Monica spent summer of 2010 shooting a private commission in various countries of the world for Sheikh Mansour of Abu Dhabi in the UAE.
