DCP Speaker Series: John Langmore

Austin-based photographer John Langmore will share his most recent projects, highlighting the cowboys of America on the country's largest ranches.

This event was held January 23, 2020. Click here to see what events are happening now!

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’s photography has been widely published and exhibited, including an exhibition together with his father’s work at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.
