Luis Fabini: Horsemen of the Americas


Over the weekend, photographer Luis Fabini contacted me to share a new video he made celebrating the Horsemen of the Americas. Regular readers of this blog will be familiar with his name as he was featured a few months ago over here with his evocative photographs of cowboys, llaneros, vaqueiros and gauchos from all over North and South America.



(If you have trouble with the embedded video, you can watch it here: http://youtu.be/hj2zLj9pvTk)

For anyone who's had trouble telling apart a gaucho from a vaqueiro or a charro from a llanero, this video will be of interest to you as Fabini shows his beautiful photographs along with a little map pinpointing where these different horsemen come from. It doesn't hurt that there's stirring music from Cuarteto Zitarrosa.

The simple four-minute video shows just how connected these different horsemen are, despite the diversity of location and lifestyle. Iif you missed the first post on Luis Fabini, check out more of his amazing Horsemen of the Americas photographs here.

That is so cool he contacted you and there are so many great photos in that video. I'm always really impressed with cowboys because I've always been scared of horses. I'm always afraid I'm going to get kicked by one so it's so cool to see these western photos, they remind me of old movies.
Nice post

This content is not m cup of tea (no idea why) but the picture at 1:25 had the unintentional effect of creeping me the hell out.

Those men though, they are a breed apart.

That was a great vid. It's hard to forget his pictures, as soon as I played the video I remembered the older post.

And the music definitely topped the video off nicely. I like.
