Wade Davis: Photographs

Celebrated anthropologist and photographer Wade Davis has travelled the world in pursuit of the wonder of the human imagination as brought into being by culture. In Wade Davis: Photographs, Davis selects 150 of his favourite photographs from the thousands he has taken in the course of his 40-year career. Intimate portraits of family and community life, they are universal in feel, although they represent an enormous diversity of geographical locations and cultural backgrounds. Each one captures a rich story about the human condition, and invites the viewer to experience scenes of family, magic, love and tradition.

Cowboys of the Americas

Luis Fabini offers an awe-inspiring portrait of cowboys throughout the Americas in images and words. For more than a decade, he immersed himself in cowboy culture as he traveled through North and South America. An eloquent text by anthropologist and author Wade Davis reflects on the long relationship between horses and humans, describes the significance of Fabini‚Äôs work, and illuminates the enduring spirit of cowboy culture.
