"The Cowboy Returns"

Back in the 1970s, Bank Langmore left his corporate career to photograph the cowboys of the American West. Family in tow, Bank set out for the greatest ranches in the country, developing images that would later become The Cowboy, a book long-considered to be the seminal work on the subject. Four decades later, his son, John Langmore, takes the reins of the family tradition. After spending many youthful summers "cowboying" on the same ranches his father photographed, John returned to the ranch life to produce his own study from 2012 to 2015.

The result is a father/son collaboration of over 100 black and white and color prints. In its first original exhibition, The Briscoe Western Arm Museum "gives us a rare glimpse behind the veneer of this robust American hero — we see what happens in the off hours and share in the struggles and triumphs of daily existence on the great frontier."

Opens Saturday, September 12, Briscoe Western Art Museum, 210 W. Market St., briscoemuseum.org.
