About The Artwork

In years passed, I’d have shot a group of young girls watching two young cowboys sprinting to the finish line. Times have changed even in places where we’d assume it’s stood still. I love the juxtaposition of the lady riders and excited young cowboy on the sideline. I’m sure he’s hoping that some day he can ride as fast as the girls flying by. There’s lot about this photo that I love, in particular, the toothpick in his hatband. I feel these images bring out the artistry of rodeo, which is not normally seen in traditional sport imagery. These images are orthochromatic in nature with a contemporary modern quality.

I never set out to be a photographer. I really wanted to be an artist. I distinctly remember my parents saying something like “how are you going to make a living as an artist? Drawing pictures on the sidewalk?” So, I quickly changed my career description to “commercial artist”, because “commercial” artists being “commercial” must make money somehow, so mom and dad let me head off to Boston to become one. ////////////////////////////////////////// It was nearing the end the Mad Men era and the advertising business was changing, creativity was now king. Commercial artists were now called art directors. Agencies now wanted people with ideas not drawing skills. Fortunately I was pretty good at ideas and not that good at drawing. I won a lot of awards, made a bunch of money and my parents were extreamly happy that I wouldn’t be living in my car. ////////////////////////////////////////// My boss and creative director Carl Fawlor handed me his Nikon F. I remember what a beautiful piece of machinery it was and that it weighed as much as a cinderblock. Carl told me that as an art director I’d be working with some pretty good photographers, so I better start learning photography so I could direct them. Actually I took a different approach, I picked all their brains. I’ve now carried my camera for almost fifty years. And in that time… I guess I became a pretty good photographer… without even knowing it. //////////////////////////////////////// Harry John Kerker is a Los Angeles based fine art photographer.
