Editorial Reviews

Review

"Still was Robb Kendrick's first choice for the title of this book--not only because of the dictates of the large-format lens and its long exposures (the subjects had to stand real still), but because he believes in the historical stamina of American cowboys, in their enduring place in the national image and in the fact that a century from now these people will be part of our energetic, vital, independent spirit, still." Marianne Wiggins "The outside circle is the longest, widest-ranging path that a cowboy travels in rounding up cattle. Here one usually goes for the longest periods of time without seeing one's comrades. The cowboy assigned to ride the outside circle is invariably the most competent and experienced member of the crew... Robb Kendrick rode the outside circle and returned with immense revelations." Jay Dusard

Beyond the beautiful photographs the piercing eyes in these portraits tell it all.
These cowboys and cowgirls are serious about what they do and how they do it. Serious
about living life to the fullest on their own terms.
I must be honest and tell you I am not a big fan of cowboy photography or any photography
that romanticizes a culture or group of people. Pretty pictures are a dime a dozen and mean little
in the understanding of the people being photographed. Think current day celebrity portraiture.
These portraits show dedication to documenting a people and way of life long forgotten
by modern day Americans. I think you will feel the spirit of these people when you look
at these tintypes and read the stories of the cowboys in their own words. This book belongs in any serious collection of the American West way of life.

I have always been fascinated with old world photographic processes. After browsing through the book several times I was struck with the portraits themselves. While these portraits were recently done you easily get the feel that these cowboys are from a time gone by.

An incredible way of life incredibly captured by a talented photographer

I ordered this book after hearing an interview with the author/photographer on NPR. Captured in the spirit of yesteryear, these photographs of modern cowboys are just beautiful!

Its good to hear so many people are really getting the feel of what life out here is like. My name is Nate Patterson and I'm in the book. Robb came to Spanish Ranch, in Tusscarrora, Nevada while I was Jigger Boss. Its good to hear that so many people can really look deeply at what a real cowboy's eyes hold. Many photographers come to the ranches and try to capture the "cowboy life" but Robb did an excelent job.

Format: Hardcover
Still is not simply a book of cowboy tintypes. This book has depth as it is filled with revealing portraits of cowboys created with an antiquated process that requires true craftsmanship. Because each tintype is crafted by hand (and beautifully done), they each have unique and unreplicable characteristics analogous to the portraits of the cowboys themselves. In additon to the craftsmanship, there's an impressive amount of these portraits with each subsequent one being just as interesting as the previous. Accompanying the portraits are several stories from the cowboys that add a more personal element to the book. Still is a beautifully executed book of tintype cowboy portraits that I highly recommend to anyone.

Having cowboyed in the areas of the country these photos were taken my heart sings that the boys on these ranches are still out there! Kendrick has taken the time, science and artist endeavor to create a book that will stand the test of time.
This book is an investment, not just a coffe table decoration.
