Photographing the Flat

My favourite photographs are the ones that manage to get the Chico as it really is: a huge, rolling expanse of yellow-brown prairie, freckled with cholla, and ringed by a faraway line of mountains.

First Weeks

So far I have only completed two weeks of work here on the Chico, however in that time I have learned a lot. That first week was a crash course in everything that you could think of when it comes to ranch life. Growing up, I had been around ranching but nothing as intensive as this.

Adjusting

Ranchlands film and photography intern, Lucy Maude, describes her first few weeks with Ranchlands and the contrasts from her former life in the city.

I’m sure we’re all aware of, or can take a good guess at, the narrative of Making Sacrifices and Understanding Hard Work that comes with interning on a working cattle ranch. Five o’clock wake ups! Manual labour! Cold! Spending an hour digging a motorbike out of a ditch you ran it into! No Starbucks! It’s a tale as

Goodbye

By: Fred Kelly

Tomorrow I will be leaving the ranch after two fun filled months at the Zapata ranch as an intern. Having arrived in April from London the internship has been a very exciting and interesting experience, a time in my life I will not forget in a hurry. Adapting to ranch life has been a very refreshing experience for me, having grown up in cities all my life and despite my previous thoughts I have not missed the city at
