About this Artist
"For years I have been photographing the cowboys of the American West. I try to give an honest, fresh account of what is clearly an authentic--but vanishing--American subculture."
Adam Jahiel has had a varied professional career working extensively for the motion picture industry, as well as photographing adventure projects--most notably as the photographer for the landmark French-American 1987 Titanic expedition. For years, Jahiel has also been photographing the cowboys of the Great Basin, perhaps one of the most inhospitable regions of the rugged American West.
Cowboying as an art form is almost obsolete; still, the cowboys hang on with a ferocious tenacity. The cowboy tradition has its roots in the oldest of human conflicts: man against nature and man against himself. It is these conflicts that Jahiel tries to reflect in his photographs. He does not "remake" the cowboys into romanticized, Hollywood images. Instead, Jahiel considers his photographs to be "found" images, in keeping with his commitment to authenticity.» View the full artist page of Adam Jahiel
