Tintypes by Robb Kendrick.
Bright Sky Press, Albany, TX,, 2005. 192 pp., 75 ferrotype illustrations., 11x11".
The cowboy of the 19th century gave Texas its character. His honesty, steadiness, sense of humor, work ethic and determination, created as (the) state grew up on the range, remain as Texans’ indigenous values. In the minds of many, the Texas Cowboy is now only myth or legend, but Robb Kendrick’s Texas Tintypes manifest what is known in the soul of Texans everywhere: the cowboy remains. Documenting the 21st-century working cowboy in Revealing Character, renowned photographer Robb Kendrick has used the historical ferrotype or “tintype” method of photography—and allows each cowboy or cattlewoman to speak in “Field Notes” with quiet candor.
