Thru May 8 at the National Cowboy Museum in OKC 


The Cowboy Returns: Photographs by Bank and John Langmore is a nationally traveling exhibition organized by the Briscoe Western Art Museum. The exhibit shows an intimate view of the cowboy over two generations in a collection of 100 black-and-white plus color photographs. The images depict the iconic cowboy’s gritty reality of working and living in the American West. The exhibit includes select work from Bank Langmore—considered a preeminent photographer of the American cowboy in the 1970s—and his son, John Langmore, a celebrated artist in his own right, who spent the last three years photographing many of the same people and ranches his father documented over 40 years ago.
