Chevaux De La Carmargue – Horses of the Camargue a photography exhibition by Sarah Howard
This September sees well-known local photographer Sarah Howard exhibit her work at The Hub in Melbourn. The exhibit showcases her work following a visit to the Camargue last year.
The Camargue is a Regional Natural Park, centred around the Rhone Delta on the border between Provence and Languedoc-Roussillon in the south of France. Covering more than 900 square kilometres to the south of Arles it is a large, flat area of marshes, fields, salt-flats and lakes, and the largest river delta in Europe.
Whichever direction you arrive from the Camargue is a surprising contrast, with its landscape quite unlike anywhere else in the south of France. The Camargue Regional Natural Park is also home to an astonishing range of wildlife, including Flamingos, wild bulls and the renowned Camargue horses, and many hundreds of species of birds.
The famous Camargue horses are the main focus of this exhibition. Capturing them in full motion riding through the waves to photographing their guardians in action. Sarah says “Its certainly a way of life that’s very enviable, the location was truly stunning and an amazing opportunity to photograph these amazing horses.”
The exhibition runs from 2nd – 28th September at The Hub, Melbourn and photographs and cards will be available for sale. The Hub is open Monday to Saturday 9am – 5pm. Sarah is happy to take on personal commissions and can be contacted on 07531 735398 or email: email@example.com
