With this photo series included in the exhibition Andrea Robbins & Max Becher. Displacements, the photographic duo shines a spotlight on Black cowboy culture, a phenomenon practically unheard-of outside the United States due to segregation in competitive rodeos and the exclusion of Black cowboys from the iconography of the Western genre. Robbins and Becher travelled across the country, conducting interviews and research and using their camera to merge the artistic tradition of documentary photography with a conceptual approach that critiques society.
