Tony Moody has spent several years admiring the elusive wild mustangs of the rugged Owyhee Canyonlands.

Every spring he heads to the area of hoodoos and canyons that border the southwest Oregon/Idaho border. That’s when the mustangs in Idaho’s herd management areas are more communal and therefore sometimes easier to find.

It’s also when the canyonlands are more hospitable before hot, dry conditions take over in June and July.

While researching the mustangs, he’s trained his camera lens on them. And many of the magical photographs he has shot have found their way into Jerry Hadam’s Saddle Tree Gallery in The Courtyard at 360 East Avenue in Ketchum.

“As an artist I love to take my images and give them a bit of style not unlike I used to do with watercolors in my earlier years,” says Moody, a native of Laramie, Wyo. “Horses have personalities and, after spending several days with various herds, I try and enhance those qualities.  It astonishes me how rugged and healthy they seem to be with no care while living in nearly impossible conditions.”

Moody is a Boise-based architectural photographer and artist whose work has been featured in local magazines. He is a long-time member of the Art Source Gallery in Boise and has displayed work at Cole Marr Gallery and Capitol Contemporary Gallery in Boise.

His “FRACTIONS” show in early 2020 at Art Source Gallery raised nearly $700 for Boys and Girls Club.
