Brian Smale, a different kind of horse whisperer


Brian Smale shot these beautifully evocative images at Flying Horseshoe Ranch in central Washington, where his wife runs an art history school for kids every summer. From the way he captures the soul of these beautiful animals, I figured Brian was some kind of lifelong “horse whisperer,” so I asked him about that. “No,” he said, “In fact, they kind of scare me.” Okay, so he’s not a horse whisperer. That just confirms what I already knew: he’s a photography whisperer.
