Blake Little Exhibit Opening
Date: February 5, 2019 Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Event Description The Latah County Historical Society and University of Idaho are pleased to announce the local exhibition of Blake Little: Photographs from the Gay Rodeo. Experience the grit, determination, and tumbles of the gay rodeo circuit with this exhibition of photographs that explore a time-honored American tradition. Rendering the story in classic black-and-white imagery, Blake Little captures scenes of camaraderie, identity, and sport in an expansive redefinition of what a cowboy can be. Blake Little: Photographs from the Gay Rodeo opens February 5 at the University of Idaho Library, and runs through April 30. Consisting of 41 black and white photographs taken by Blake Little between 1988 and 1992, Photographs from the Gay Rodeo documents the gay rodeo circuit and the lives of many of its participants in those years. The collected body of work not only serves as a stunning example of black and white portraiture and of rodeo photography, it also explores the diverse and complex natures of individual and community identity in the West.
