“Cowboys of the Americas” results from a decade of Fabini’s photographs, following the theme of the cowboy in South and North America, and resulting in a portfolio of images documenting a form of life still here in Alberta, and all through the Americas.

Wade Davis, an anthropologist, has added a text to the photographs, on the relationship between equine and human.
