Ridin' drag, Bell Ranch, New Mexico by Martin Schreiber
The Royal National Theatre presents a unique exhibition:
Last of a Breed: A photographic tribute to the working cowboy
by Martin HM Schreiber
14 February - 23 March 2002
Lyttelton Exhibition Foyer 10.00am - 11.00pm (not Sundays). Free
"Martin Schreiber's strikingly direct and truthful photographs vividly capture and convey the allure and the reality of cowboying. No drugstore, celluloid, urban or wannabe cowboys here … just the real McCoy". Professor Richard W. Slatta
This exhibition is a remarkable collection of around 100 images by internationally acclaimed photographer and adventurer Martin Schreiber. This compelling photographic record captures the essence of the contemporary cowboy's daily existence, which has remained unchanged since the need for cowboys arose. In addition to the striking images originally featured in a book on the same theme Last of a Breed: Portraits of Working Cowboys, the exhibition will also include much new work. Around half of the work in the exhibition has never been shown in the UK.
This show is a social documentary giving an intriguing insight to a free-ranging lifestyle, which has been an inspiration for many writers and film-makers and reveals recent images of the great American hero known throughout the world. The images reveal raw masculinity and vast spaces and provoke a dream of a rural past.

Kari Ann Owen, From Student to Teacher, Disabled Equestrian Lives Her Dream

Kari Ann Owen has overcome many obstacles in her life. A sciatic nerve injury leaves Kari Ann with a limited ability to walk. Previously, she was breifly confined to a wheelchair. Through weight loss, intense spiritual healing, and therapeutic horseback riding, Kari Ann has come a long way.
