Photographer's Note

As I told you, in these last years it is becoming very popular the recreation of the Brazilian cowboy style by young men as a leisure. Many young lads get horses and created groups of friends to ride like cowboys in some events like religious pilgrimages, rodeos and parties. Of course the fantasy attract many girls and they have they have their own "cowgirls" fantasies, but in fact this is a boys game.
There are some events whose dress style is more similar with the american cowboys and others where the original Brazilian style are more evident, based in southern Brazilian guachos or in Pantanal cowboy.

Curiously a famous rural singer in Brazil died in a stage near my home few days before, I remember one of his famous songs named "Cowboy Vagabundo" (tramp cowboy).It is a history of a guy who wanted to be a famous rodeo cowboy but his wife destroyed his dreams saying this was a dream of a tramp. He became a famous rodeo star and his former-wife recognized his success. It is a song with an American-country song style.
