A longtime favorite getaway for America’s most influential families, Cumberland Island is home to a diverse collection of habitats, featuring expansive white-sand beaches, immense rolling dunes, old-growth maritime oak forests and salt marsh tidal estuaries. 

At the center of it all are the island’s majestic horses that have adapted and thrived for generations within this serene sanctuary.  

Wild Horses of Cumberland Island is the culmination of over ten years and dozens of visits to Cumberland Island.  

Anouk’s images are an intimate reflection of Cumberland’s rich history, exceptional natural beauty and the island’s remarkable horses. 

Embracing the island’s raw elements in all of its seasons; rain, wind, fog, storms and sunshine, Anouk has created a body of work that delivers to the page the profound and varied emotions that Cumberland so powerfully inspires.


Born and raised in France, Anouk Masson Krantz moved to the United States in the late 1990s. She earned her bachelor’s degree and worked at Cartier’s New York corporate office. Anouk later studied at the International Center of Photography and has developed several notable bodies of work, including this stunning book, Wild Horses of Cumberland Island. Her work has appeared in prominent galleries and earned accolades from the International Photography Awards and International Monochrome Awards.
