Today’s daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Tomás Munita's work on cowboys in Chilean Patagonia. The breathtaking photographs, made on Munita's first assignment for National Geographic, document the life of bagualeros. They roam on horseback to round up and capture feral livestock to be sold for their meat. Such hard work for little profit can pit them against the scourges of hunger and exhaustion, but as Munita's pictures show, it makes for a simple and romantic way of life for this dying breed of cowboy.
