On the occasion of release of the book Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch, PDNB Gallery in Dallas, presents the first exhibition of photographs by Jeremy Enlow.

With a decision looming on the inevitable sale of the legendary 510,572-acre Waggoner Ranch in Northwest Texas, this young Texas photographer was given exclusive access to the Cow Camp operation behind the prestigious reversed triple D brand of the Waggoner Ranch, the largest ranch in the United States under one contiguous fence.

The book and prints are a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the lives of the ranch’s 26 Cow Camp workers who practice skills that have almost disappeared. Unlike their modern day counterparts of the Ranch’s horse operation, the work of these cowboys has changed little since Daniel Waggoner claimed his preemption grant of 160 acres in 1854 and struck out with 242 head of longhorns and six horses for the rolling prairies of west Texas.

“There was a time when the chink-a-chink of spurs was immediately identifiable, the creak of a saddle an ordinary thing, and a man wasn’t worth much in a practical sense if he couldn’t throw a rope … Being a cowboy was hard work that paid twelve dollars a month or twenty calves a year if you worked for Dan and Tom Waggoner.”  – Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch
