Ilona Szwarc - Rodeo Girls

Rodeo Girls is an ongoing portrait project about young girls from Texas who compete in rodeos.
These individuals have a fundamentally different idea about their femininity and a contrasting attitude towards gender roles. They are engaged in activities that traditionally were reserved for men; they possess great physical strength and demonstrate their dominance over animals. I am interested in the limitation these girls face in expressing their femininity and the transference of it onto animals.

A lifestyle or hobby may be familiar to some and highly unusually to others. By Photographing its intricacies an audience can learn and find images engaging. Of course fantastic use of outdoor flash/strobe lighting in combination with a strong ambient light can also get their attention
