i love anything to do with cowgirls, so it was a treat looking through this recent New York Times feature about cowgirls of today who grow up in the ranch country of the Texas Panhandle. some of these girls appear quite tough (and i bet they are!) but then you spot the inconspicuous braid in their horse’s mane. photographer Ilona Szwarc is known for her series about American Girls, which you can see on her website.
pardon all the art related posts, but i musn’t forget about this (as i did a couple of weeks ago). i stumbled upon it again today and just love love love it. In Love With A. Lincoln by Maira Kalman
