Cowpuncher: Cowboyin’ In The Southwest

By Kurt Markus

Through words and pictures distilled from more than 15 years in the cowboy Southwest, photographer Kurt Markus takes us along on his personal journey of discovery of a working life that lives at once in myth and in reality. This new, beautifully produced book distills the best of his work, an enduring and timeless view into ranch life in Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado. Following his hugely successful books After Barbed Wire and Buckaroo, this is the cowboy book Markus always wanted to make. Oversized, with 155 exquisite tritone and varnished photographs, and enriched by journal entries by the photographer that reveal an intimate, sometimes lonely, often humorous look into his experiences taking pictures of people and horses, cattle and landscapes, this spectacular book is for anyone who loves the idea of the cowboy.
