Ranchers photographed using the tintype process of 1854. The images were used in a book, Revealing Character, insertions in Texas Monthly to promote the book and seven museum exhibitions over a three-year period, as well as large prints for bank lobbies made from the project. The one of a kind tintypes were made over 6 weeks of shooting and traveling 18,000 miles. Images could not be used to promote products or services the bank offers. Preservation of this unique part of Texas culture documents the 21st century working cowboy.
