On Friday, August 20, from 4 to 7 p.m., fine art photographer Drew Doggett will take part in a book signing in celebration of the launch of his latest hard-cover coffee table book “Wild: The Legendary Horses of Sable Island.” The event will be held at Zadeh, located at 94 Main Street in Southampton Village.
“Wild,” with a foreword by Dr. Jane Goodall, is an ode to the untamed horses living on Sable Island, a remote stretch of land nestled in the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Nova Scotia. Through personal writings and an incredible collection of images, the book transports viewers to Sable’s shores alongside Doggett as he revels in the magic of a place man has failed to conquer.
Doggett spent a culmination of eight years documenting the site, photographing multiple series that make up a comprehensive, intimate and meticulously curated work of art in book form.
The signing and reception is the inaugural event of Doggett’s upcoming, nationwide tour for his new book. The walls of Zadeh will be transformed into a gallery of his globally best-selling and award-winning print series “Discovering the Horses of Sable Island” and “Spirit of Sable,” to transport guests to the grassy knolls and rolling dunes of Nova Scotia’s best kept secret.
Both the book and Doggett’s prints will be available for purchase. Small bites and refreshments will be served throughout the event.
