In calmer times pedestrians crossing the bridge from Nuevo Larado, Mexico into Larado Texas. Hotel Hamilton in the distance. “Streets of Larado” (July 1959). “As I walked out on the streets of Larado…” – Johnny Cash.
A classic image to be sure. You know it when you see it. “Dust Bowl Mother“; Texas c.1937. Prosperity, depression, war and victory. They are not called the Greatest Generation without cause.
The quotation is from the movie “Hell or High Water” (2016). I believe any attempt by me to explain its significance would be futile. I strongly recommend that you see this movie. See Texas Settlers.
This slideshow presents some of the work of A. Michael Uhlmann. As a contributing photojournalist based in Texas, Uhlmann has access to the Texas lifestyle as seen in his “Daily Life” collection. His work is not limited to only this collection. What is so special is that Uhlmann’s photographic style is clearly recognizable. Several of his other collections are located in our Texas gallery. His biography is available on our Photographers’ Page.
