Synopsis : Colorado Cowboys is a stunning collection of photography that will grace any coffee table. Christopher Marona, the artist, scoured the corners of his home state of Colorado to discover families that still ranch with traditional techniques.

He found that ranchers raising cattle in the rugged mountainous regions still favor horses as superior and more reliable method of travel over four wheelers and motorbikes.

These families treated him to a rare glimpse of a struggling but enduring cowboy culture. More than just punching cows, he saw a living, breathing philosophy; a cowboy’s relation to the animals he tended, the land that he depended on, and, above all, his Creator. Families were not groups of genetically similar individuals, but teams that relied upon one another for day-to-day survival. A good horse wasn’t considered a commodity, but a trusted friend. A saddle, handed down through generations, connected a young girl with her long since laid to rest great-grandfather.

Marona shares his experience through his dramatic, compelling photography and with stories, poems, and quips collected from the cowboys, themselves.

Page de garde: Colorado Cowboys The spirit and the freedom of the West is characterized by the cowboy way of life-a life unfettered by time clocks, where the natural rhythms of the seasons determine the work to be done. Photographer Christopher Marona rode with cowboys throughout Colorado, His friendships with the men and women he photographed allowed him to capture those special moments-moments that evoke the romance and majesty of the American West.

Raised in cowboy country, Christopher brings a rare perspective to his subject. He has spent years in the company of cowboys, learning their ways and gaining insight into the people who choose this rugged lifestyle. His deep understanding of the cowboy is clearly illustrated in his rich photography. His images portray the passion cowboys feel for the land, for their animals, and for doing what they love best-working under the western sky with a good saddle horse and a rope.

Colorado Cowboys captures the essence of cowboy life, and gives voice to the cowhands themselves. Brief stories provide a look at how they see the world; there is a clear vision tempered with wit and humor.

The heart and soul of the West, cowboys are nevertheless a vanishing breed. Christopher Marona’s fine art photography preserves this priceless heritage, recording on film the romantic ideal as well as the grand landscapes that have shaped the cowboy character. In Colorado Cowboys, the history, the passion, and beauty of this rugged life live on.
