Texas has a strong ranching tradition which has had significant influence on American cowboy culture, particularly in rodeo.
What I tried to do with this project is to tell about the Texan culture during all the time spent in Houston and surroundings' rodeo related events. There are cliches, there is irony, but there is above all respect for a fascinating way of being. Because Texans take themselves damned seriously about the rodeo, and they do well.
This has been my first totally analog project, all the pictures were shot on an old point and shoot Olympus camera with Fuji Superia 400 films. A summer's colour palette
