David Stoecklein Art Prints of Horses



If you have ever admired the captivating images of horses used in Marlboro cigarette advertisements, you may already be familiar with the work of equestrian and Western-life photographer, David R. Stoecklein. Although he was born 'back East' in the city of Pittsburgh, Stoecklein has a unique and compelling talent for capturing Western imagery, modern and traditional, that sets him apart in his generation of American photographers.

Some of his best work features moments of interaction between people and horses, providing moving and vivid glimpses into the special relationship that humans have forged with horses, through thousands of years of nurturing delicate bonds and taming spirits vastly different from those of mankind. David Stoecklein Art Prints of Horses celebrate those bonds and that special spirit that has endeared the horse to us even in the more modern era.

Among his works are Running in the Gold and Running in the Dunes, which portray herds of horses in different light and landscapes. These images provide viewers with a sense of horses' might and majesty in the open and field and dunes of the West, surrounded by beautiful, yet earthy tones and shades. They represent just a small portion of what Stoecklein is capable of accomplishing in his artistic field, which is truly broad in scope.

Stoecklein is also the author of several books, including Dude Ranches of the American West and Don't Fence Me In: Images of the West, among many published titles, the majority of which feature Western and cowboy life, as well as exceptional photographs. He is also the creator of many thematic calenders on these topics, including those for the current year, all of which feature his stunning photography.

At the time of this article, Stoecklein lives in the scenic Wood River Valley of south-central Idaho, along with his family.
