A gaucho displaying some fancy horse work on the high-altitude ranges of Salta province, Argentina. “The Indios cowboys had such great style,” says Menke of her 1998 visit. “Thick ponchos, wide-brimmed hats, and loose-fitting pants called bombachas. It had always been a dream of mine to shoot them.”
I wish I'd wake up as a "gaucho" the cowboys of the Andes. Way more badass than the stereotypical Western cowboy. These guys are so bohemian and overall awesome, plus they live all over the Southern Cone (Chile, Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay) Not my words!
