Growing up, when I wasn’t at the stable, I was reading horse books or watching horse movies. Smokey, Fury, The Black Stallion, My Friend Flicka – I knew the stories inside and out. I had a vivid imagination about wild horses, cowboys and roundups, daily life on a ranch and much more. Many years later and after six years of photographing wild horses, I decided to take a look at the life of a cowboy.
Day starts very early and ends up well after dark, once the horses are clean, dry and secure for the night. Their jobs on a working farm are paramount to its success. This collection represents only a small aspect of a working cowboy. There is much more to explore here. Expect new images added in the future.
I grew up near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the Wissahickon River. I spent many hours hiking the trails, swimming in the pools of water and feeling most alive and at home surrounded by nature. As a teenager, I wrote poetry about nature and put together a book. I asked a photographer friend to make photographs for the book and instead he actually inspired me to become a photographer by having me photograph the landscape around me. I was living in Bucks county at the time and was surrounded by forests and streams to wander about. This group of photographs comprise some of the beautiful landscapes I live in and have traveled to. The idea of changing seasons has always fascinated me. The cycle of life from seed to plant to tree to falling leaves and winter hibernation. Sitting atop a high bluff in North Dakota, observing the wild horses below a giant eagle with outstretched wings lifted up in the breeze right before my eye coming so close I could feel the vibration of this magnificent bird was breath-taking……Years earlier I was in the snowy woods of Bucks county, my frosty breathe visible to the eye. When a red fox came down the path, stopped to lick it’s paws and quietly moved on. A scene that remains with me 40 years later.The beauty I witness, the solitude and peace I feel, the renewal of one’s energy are all reasons to celebrate the seasons of a landscape.
