I've Always Been A Cowboy In My Heart

© Sandy Carson

I've Always Been A Cowboy In My Heart is my outsider's observations of the weird happenstances that present itself on the great American road trip, as seen through the wide eyes of a Scotsman. After relocating from my native homeland of Scotland in the '90s, I have now spent over half my life in Texas. This 12-year project chronicles my fascination with everyday occurrences in the social landscape and explores the spaces between clarity and imperfection, composing a personal slice of America.

When put into a photographic context, the aesthetics convey recurring visions of scrutiny, Scottish humour, absurdity and empathy, transforming the banalest scenarios into a nostalgic connection to myself and my background.
