Rodeo Girls is an ongoing portrait project about young girls from Texas who compete in rodeos.
These individuals have a fundamentally different idea about their femininity and a contrasting attitude towards gender roles. They are engaged in activities that traditionally were reserved for men; they possess great physical strength and demonstrate their dominance over animals.
I am interested in the limitation these girls face in expressing their femininity and the transference of it onto animals.
