The Last Cowboys

From the UK Daily Mail

For years, photographer Adam Jahiel has been taking pictures of the cowboys of Nevada’s Great Basin, perhaps one of the most inhospitable regions of the already harsh West.

‘These people represent one of the last authentic American subcultures, one that is disappearing at a rapid rate,’ Jahiel said.   Cowboying as an art-form is almost obsolete.

The late 1900s were tough times for cowboys, ranchers, farmers and anyone working with the land in the U.S.

Changing modes of food distribution and production, widespread urbanization and severe economic difficulties forced many to sell their land, go bankrupt, change professions, or take out large loans.

In 2003, there were just under 10,000 cowboys left in the U.S., making an average of $19,340 per year working in ranches, stockyards and rodeos.
