Cowboy Kate & Other Stories Sam Haskins Photography

Cowboy Kate & andere verhalen

Sam Haskins, Amsterdam, De Bezige Bij, 1965. Cloth-covered boards (hardcover), illustrated dustjacket with protective mylar, 35,7 x 27,5 cm., unpaginated, text in Dutch with photographic b/w plates. Plates printed in gravure.

Haskins' seminal sixties classics, which include the groundbreaking Cowboy Kate, are landmarks in the history of photography, as revered today as they were when first published forty years ago. In Cowboy Kate, a lyrical tale of the triumph of youth played out by cowgirls of the old west, Haskins reinvented the genre of the nude with stunningly well-executed photographs, a cinematic approach, and a subtly engaging narrative. Often copied but rarely equaled, Haskins has an exceptional ability to photograph women with a sensitivity that has won him accolades from men and women alike.
