BLACK COWBOYS

Brian Branch-Price | United States

PHILADELPHIA, PA. Black cowboys take a ride around South Philly including FDR Park, and the sports complex on Sunday, January 10, 2021 2

This work is taken from Brian Branch-Price’s "BLACANA”, a word derived from Black Americana, Black Culture, or a space or place where Black folks can be found living, breathing, relaxing in America or globally. The emphasis in on Black culture in whole or in part.

Back in the 1990s, my mama wanted to take me to see the Black rodeo. We never made it but there is no time like the present.

The Black cowboys—or horseman—are a traditional form of Black culture dating back hundreds of years.

Currently the tradition rides on. The first step is getting permission to photograph them, gaining their trust through relationship building, and sharing your photos and explain what your plans are with publishing the photos.

I began my career as a freelancer for the Washington Post, then staffing with the News Journal in Wilmington, DE and the Associated Press in Trenton, NJ. I focus on portraiture, reportage and fine art photography.

I have had the privilege to work with Ebony magazine, GM, Ford Motor Company, The National Urban League, The Positive Community Magazine, Zuma Press Images, The Washington Post Magazine.

I have had several art exhibits at the Plainfield Public Library on the legendary Black gospel artists and veterans that included over 20,000 visitors. Brian’s work also appeared at the Delaware Historical Society.

I earned a B.S in Environmental Geology and a minor in Fine Arts from Howard University. I enjoy cycling and am a member the Major Taylor Cycling Club of New Jersey, American Society of Media Photographers and The National Association of Black Journalists.

Brian's hero’s are his parents, five sons, Moneta Sleet, Jr
and hometown photographers Irvin Penn and Margaret Bourke White.
