Cowboy Chronicles


© Johnhamiltoncollection.com

Starting in 1956, photographer John R. Hamilton focused his lens on Hollywood cowboys and mavericks, capturing the most rugged leading men in moments of unguarded whimsy, offscreen and behind the scenes. 

Since his death, in 1997, his vast archive has languished in semiobscurity. That is about to change, thanks to John Wayne Enterprises and EDA Collections, who own Hamilton’s collection and are planning to exhibit his work at L.A.’s Morrison Hotel Gallery, located inside the Sunset Marquis, for a month, starting February 12.
