Exhibition Description

In a landscape far removed from the urban centres, rodeos continue to be “a way of life” for many. Competing in Rodeos is undeniably dangerous. But to the riders “it’s a passion - a lifestyle.” For them that’s what it means to be a cowboy; to work and live in the country, travel and ride, and embrace the risks involved.

“It’s not about when you get hurt, it’s how bad.” Careers very rarely endure beyond the age of 40. Yet these cowboys do not seek longevity, they thrive in pursuit of the “next eight second journey.” Thousands of kilometres are travelled across this enormously sparse country, priorities are subject to the riding lifestyle, families adapt, injuries are suffered and lifelong memories are created by the cowboys that dedicate themselves to the rodeo experience.
