Cowboys, 2005

Photographic Installation

For the group exhibit, "The American West" , at Compton Verney Art Gallery, Warwickshire, Alves documented not only  actors who played cowboys in movies  but also artists  as well as musicians and politicians who actively participate and advocate the cowboy life-style  thereby actively engaging in the construction of the myth of the cowboy to the detrimental of land rights and struggles of indigenous peoples.
