When Doyle says “cowboy,” he does not necessarily mean it as a vocation.
“I use the term cowboy loosely. It’s not like Texas here, where cowboys ranch cattle. A cowboy in the Delta is more about recreation — either as a hobby or competing in a rodeo or horse show. In other words, everyone I’ve photographed has a different day job.”
“Delta Hill Riders” will be on display in an exhibition curated by Anna Van Lenten at “The Half King Photo Series” in Manhattan, opening June 19.
