The first monograph by Arthur Frank depicting the modern cowboy in his element - at the Rodeo. After reading a front-page article in "The New York Times" about the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, Arthur Frank took a week off from his law practice to travel around Wyoming, photographing whatever rodeos he could find. Once there, he found the culture of the American cowboy very much alive and kicking. Although their practical skills remain essential to modern ranching, it is the rodeo where their trade is praised, perpetuating the myth and mystique of the cowboy. With photographs that capture the vigorous physicality of one of the world's most erratic and dangerous sports, "Cowboy Up" puts you at close range with the flared nostrils of the rodeo horses as they try desperately to rid themselves of their riders and the gritted teeth of a cowboy pulling a young bull to the ground by the horns. Delving deeper into the modern cowboy's life, Frank photographed the riders during the jittery wait before the roundup, and back at the ranch, engaging in work that tamed that Wild West. Frank's outsider perspective and insider access provide a humanistic yet dynamic and inspiring view into a lifestyle that has become an American legend.
