Hans Silvester - My complicity with the horses

From an early age, Hans Silvester had two passions: photography and horses. It was in 1957, at the age of 19, that he decided to leave his native black forest to "come down" and photograph the horses of the Camargue. These wild animals are perfectly at home in a landscape where water, earth and sky come together. He was welcomed by two manadiers who were to become his lifelong friends. They would spend long hours over several days among these hordes of free-roaming horses. Although wild, they remained docile with the men, few in number at the time to face this mosquito-infected environment. Hans, with his unfailing patience, merged with the animals and got closer to them, communicating with them and understanding them. This experience at the end of the 1960s, followed by several subsequent visits, enabled the artist to produce some magnificent images of these horses at liberty in their natural habitat.
