Blake Little Book Cover

Blake Little: Photographs from the Gay Rodeo is a book created to showcase remarkable photographs for an audience much larger than those who attended the 2014 exhibition of the same title—an exhibit now traveling to venues across the country. It features 41 black-and-white photographs taken by Blake Little between 1988 and 1992 that document the gay rodeo circuit, and the lives of many of its participants as well as essays that provide historical and cultural context for the images. The collected body of work not only serves as a stunning example of black and white portraiture and of rodeo photography, it also explores the diverse and complex natures of individual and community identity in the West.
