The Guardian: 'I can load film on horseback': cowboy photographer Kurt Markus - in pictures

Kurt Markus was born in Montana in 1947 and lived there for most of his life until his recent move to Santa Fe, New Mexico. His deep western roots are reflected in his early photographs, as well as his later volumes on cowboys: After Barbed Wire, Buckaroo, and Cowpuncher. His photographs of present-day cowboys going about their tasks in a vast landscape are a throwback to an earlier time. Kurt Markus: A Life in Photography is at Staley-Wise Gallery, New York, until 16 January, 2021.
