LIGHT Exhibition In-Person Opening
We are thrilled to re-open DCP’s gallery after a year of being dark. It’s fitting that the first exhibition back in the gallery is entitled Light and features the selections from our most recent call for entry that have light as a significant element in the image, as if the light itself is a subject in the composition.
The in-person reception is Saturday, June 19 from 1pm-7pm. This reception is free and open to all! We strongly encourage you to RSVP for a specific time slot as we will be limiting the number of people in the gallery at one time. Please view our COVID policies and procedures here.
DCP Members have early access to see the exhibition. Members early entry begins at 12pm.
Exhibition catalogs will be available for purchase during the reception.

The online exhibition will be on the DCP website soon.
Can’t make the in-person reception? Join us via Zoom for the Light Online Reception on June 3.

John Langmore is an Austin, Texas, based photographer pursuing long-term personal projects. His first book, Open Range: America’s Big-Outfit Cowboy (Twin Palms Publishers 2018), is the result of more than six years photographing on fourteen of the country’s largest ranches. John spent his summers on working ranches from the age of twelve through his first year of law school in 1986. Over the past several years he returned to photograph the cowboy way of life he lived in his youth. John focuses on “big outfits,” a small number of very large ranches scattered across the West that run a full crew of cowboys, many being the same ranches he worked on and that his father visited for his book on the cowboy in 1975. When photographing, John rises before dawn and works fourteen hour days alongside the cowboys. His photographs bear the unique mark of someone intimately familiar with life in the saddle.
John is also the co-director/producer of the award-winning feature length documentary film, Cowboys: A Documentary Portrait.
John’s second book, Fault Lines: Portraits of East Austin (Trinity University Press 2019), documents the rapidly disappearing communities of old East Austin. John lives in Austin with his wife, Erika, and his two sons, Jordan and Grant.
