Applied Arts Winner 2015 Winner, Noah Fallis
Congratulations to Noah Fallis who won a prize in the Applied Arts 2015 international competition run by Applied Arts Mag, which rewards the best photographers and illustrators in the industry.
Since migrating from Toronto to Calgary I had always been fascinated with the ruggedness and visual honesty of cowboys. Weathered faces from countless days in the foothills, every wrinkle telling of hardships and joys. They all seem to carry a quiet pride that dismisses the frivolity of urban life. In this series I have photographed nearly 50 cowboys over the years with the help of my intrepid “Cowboy Poet and Producer”, 87 year old Buddy Gale, who continues to open up the hills with his connections and enthusiasm for my work.
