Jay B. Sauceda is an Austin-based photographer originally from South Texas. This is his series on poetic cowboys. He writes:
‘I met a group of old school cowboys out in Terlingua, Texas a couple years back while horseback riding. One of them, Tom Nall, mentioned that he’d be traveling out to the Alpine Cowboy Poetry Gathering at Sul Ross University. It sounded like an interesting opportunity, so I packed up my gear and headed out west. The end result was this project, All Around Cowboys, which I produced over the course of three days. I went back again this year to gather a few more portraits for a project with Pentagram Austin.’
