In early 2019 I spent four months living in a tent at Estancia Ranquilco, a remote horse and cattle ranch nestled deep in the foothills of the Andean mountains in Northern Patagonia, Argentina. Largely stripped of modern conveniences and offering a chance to experience off-grid, communal living, it is both a gentle, and harsh, return to primitiveness.

Yet the magnetic pull from Ranquilco reaches far beyond the realms of sentimentalism. It is not merely a vague summation of its parts. Of earth, water, sun, grass and trees. It is the past as well as the present, built into the stonework and in the footsteps of the worn paths on the last edges of land, hanging on the horizon.

For those devoted to this way of life, it is simply a return to the familiar.

“King of the Open Field, a sensuous look at the Mexican Charro. Galloping horses, wild bulls and misty landscapes; a mythic horseman on the horizon performing a brutal dance between man and beast, keeping centuries old traditions alive.”
