Tony Stromberg is well known these days for his photograpy of horses, but for two decades, Tony Stromberg made his mark as a very successful advertising photographer.
However, a quiet but gnawing voice eventually drew Tony out of his commercial roots and deep into the soul of the West. What Tony had gained in reputation, he felt he was losing in his quality of life.
In the mid 1990s, he started his pilgrimage away from the frenetic world of advertising and into a world possessing a different respect for nature and the land… a world expansive enough to hold a deep-rooted meaning and purpose for both himself and his newly-discovered partner, the horse.
Tony Stromberg has spent much of his time since then getting to learn the nuances and habits of his most beloved equine companions in their natural environment.
“The spirit of the horse”, quotes Tony, “is a magnificent teacher to humanity.” In both their physical, as well as their archetypal form, horses help to bring us back to something wild and unrestrained, reminding us of a sense of freedom that many of us have forgotten. They teach us about honesty and authenticity, because they know no other way of being.”
“They teach us about collaboration over dominance. And they teach us to respect and honor the unknown, rather than fear it and try to destroy it.”
