Cowboy Wild by David Campion


Cowboy Wild is a book that commemorates the hundred year anniversary of the Calgary Stampede. A casual history of the Stampede written by Sandra Shields accompanies the black and white photographs taken by David Campion. The photographs and the text examine the myth of the West - the central icon of the cowboy as expressed by this event - as it survives in these times. Horses and teepees; folks in cowboy and Indian garb are juxtaposed with spiked hair punk rockers, people in shorts and sunglasses, midway fair rides, big screen TVs, and Coca Cola stands in the haunting, sometimes funny tableau's that Campion captured on camera.
