Visionary Photographer Len Marks to Exhibit Equine Photos in Cold Spring Harbor May 12

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 5, 2007 --Not every photographer can capture lifestyle images, portrait work and special occasions and then set their lens on the open spaces of America's great Southwest to capture the images of mustangs roaming freely. But Len Marks isn't just another photographer. The man behind the camera is a true visionary who is passionate about his work. That passion can be seen in his imagery of "Mustangs," an art exhibit and sale which will be take place on May 12 at Len Marks Equine Studio in Cold Spring Harbor.

With "Mustangs" Len Marks has captured the movement and visions of wild horses gracing the landscape of America's Southwest. Marks creates dramatic images that speak to the soul. The wild mustangs exhibit will be presented in several themes that include large scale fine art giclee limited edition pieces; one-of-a-kind encaustic multimedia pieces and commissioned equine portraiture showcasing the intense bond between horse and owner. The images illustrate Marks' passion and skills as he captures images that are seldom seen.

Additionally, Marks has forged relationships with horse rescue farms, equine adoption facilities, and individuals that care deeply about these magnificent animals. Much of the land in which wild horses run is swiftly becoming a product of industrial development, priority for cattle grazing, and test drilling for energy exploration. "These photos exist on their own merit as alluring art pieces and also serve as a reminder about the historic significance mustangs fulfill in our nation's landscape," explains Marks. Marks travels throughout the United States to capture the beauty, movement and images of these alluring creatures. He is committed to building awareness and educating the public about the beauty and intensity of these horses so that they do not become a distant memory of our history.

The "Mustang" exhibit and sale will take place on Saturday May 12th from 12 to 6 p.m. for public viewing. The first 100 guests will receive a gift bag courtesy of Len Marks Equine and Cold Spring Harbor Merchants. Guests booking a photographic session that day receive a 20% discount and two complimentary unframed 8x10 photographic prints.
