THE FUTURE | YOUNG GAUCHO

THE FUTURE | YOUNG GAUCHO
Rio Pico, Argentina

Moments after this photo was captured, he raced off to gather a few stray cattle. He isn’t big enough yet to get his feet in the stirrups, he is usually riding his own horse, with no saddle. There are only but a few young men in this small town that will carry on the traditions, this is the future of the Las Pampas gaucho. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph him for a few years now. Each year his skills are progressing and his tasks becoming more important. I hope to see them again this year. This image was shot assignment for an upcoming film Finding Fontinalis.
