Tom Chambers: Marwari: Indigenous Spirits
Portfolio Introduction
In my eyes horses represent that which is beautiful and sacred in nature. In particular, the noble Marwari horses from India have captured my attention. Known for their loyalty and bravery, the Marwari were considered divine beings as far back as the twelfth century. Victimized by difficult economic times, poor horse management, and global warming, the Marwari horse population was decimated by the mid-1990’s.


With my photography I present imaginary moments with the Marwari to create unspoken stories about these once mistreated creatures. The Marwari horse series illustrates both the struggle for survival and the hope for prosperity among children and animals who are both innocent and often the victims of exploitation.
