Cathy Hervert and Her Saddle, Buffalo County

Cathy Hervert and I have known each other for a long, long time, and it was only right that she be the first subject in this new book. I met her in the sandy hills of central Nebraska where I grew up, and we spent an hour in a plains-grass pasture (there are a lot of pastures where I’m from) making a few shots of her and her tack. Needless to say, she’s an easy subject to photograph, and that’s the best kind–they make the photographer look good.
