For more than a decade, photographer Luis Fabini immersed himself in cowboy culture as he traveled through North and South America. This stunning collection of photographs from those travels reveals the cowboy who lives in silence and solitude, the interconnectedness of the men with the land, and a traditional way of life that exists on the outskirts of society but also vividly in our imagination.
An eloquent text by anthropologist and author Wade Davis reflects on the long relationship between horses and humans, describes the significance of Fabini’s work, and illuminates the enduring spirit of cowboy culture.
Luis Fabini was born in Uruguay and began his career as a travel photographer and trekking guide in South America. Fabini found his passion in the relationship between man and horse and began his current body of work, Cowboys of the Americas, in 2004.
