Shifting Season

Manuela Stefan is a European/Canadian artist whose professional photography career has begun in 2005.For a few years her work has revolved mainly around capturing people and lifestyle. She presently finds herself shifting towards what seems to trigger her inspiration to the highest extent: travel and fine art photography.

While on a self exploring journey and looking for new avenues of creative expression, Manuela has recently been exposed to the equine world. The experiences she has had with horses have opened a fresh, new chapter in her artistic life. Since, she has continued on searching for more opportunities of being around these majestic animals while trying to capture their sweet yet powerful nature through her lens.

Following a magical chain of occurrences Manuela has found out about the white horses of Camargue. Soon after she decided to visit this special place in the South of France where the Rhone river flows into the Mediterranean Sea.The images in this collection are meant to evoke the mystical beauty that surrounds the white beings.
