John Langmore’s relationship with the working cowboy traces back to his great-grandfather who was one of Colonel Teddy Roosevelt’s original Rough Riders. His father, Bank Langmore, published The Cowboy in 1975 and is considered one of the pioneers of contemporary western photography.
Beginning at the age of twelve, John spent twelve summers cowboying on some of the country’s largest ranches before becoming a lawyer. John quit the legal profession to pursue his passion for photography and last year authored Open Range – America’s Big-Outfit Cowboy, published by Twin Palms. John’s second book, Fault Lines, was published by Trinity University Press in 2019. He is also the co-director on the recently completed feature-length documentary film, Cowboys – a documentary portrait.
John Langmore is an Austin-based photographer.
