The Texans began as a private commission. But I couldn't stop after the money ran out. I have had the pleasure of meeting some amazing folks who opened their doors to me and showed up when I needed it most. From an oil tycoon to a shoe shine guy, they all shared fascinating stories and gave generously of themselves. This project was shot on a Toyo 4x5 field camera using Ilford 100 black and white film. Victor Landergard was instrumental in coordinating these shoots as producer. He came all the way from Sweden, and we sent him home with a belly full of BBQ.
