Karoliina Paatos photographed the American Cowboy while living for long periods of time among the ranching community in the western part of the United States. Besides being a description of modern cowboy life, the book is also a personal expedition to the cowboy culture, which has interested Paatos since her childhood’s interest for Western films.
