Idea Code 19156

Lili Tanner admits that she began photographing cowboys by chance. Her brother-in-law is part of the team that organises the “Wild Thing” bull riding competition in Gallup, New Mexico, which is also her family’s hometown. The Swiss-American artist and photographer was soon captivated by the extreme physicality of the sport, for both human and animal, but even more so by the timeless looks and colourful styling of the men and women who ride bulls. The denim and leather radiate frontier masculinity and authenticity. Over the course of four years, Tanner documented the bull riders and the iconography and mythology of the American West that prevails at the competition.
