Charreada: Mexican Rodeo in Texas

Description: El Charro, or man on horseback, has represented the spirit of independent Mexico since he played an important role in the 1821 revolution. He is the Mexican version of the American cowboy, only much older, arising from the ranch culture first brought to Mexico by the Spanish. The Charreada is his rodeo, his opportunity to show off both his skills with rope and horse and his decorative, elegant costume. It is at the center of Mexican heritage and self-image, a source of mythology and genuine heroes that has been brought to Texas by immigrants. And since 1989, it has included women, charras, who participate in elaborate and difficult riding formations.

[Joe Clark and Ron Unternahrer Toss Up a Target Egg for Slingshot Milligan]

Description: Photograph of Joe Clark and Ron Unternahrer tossing up a target egg for Slingshot Milligan to shoot. In the image both men are wearing towels around their necks from the splattered egg matter. The two men are practicing the height of the egg being tossed in the air for the photograph they are making where Milligan shoots the egg with a Milligan Special slingshot. Narrative by Junebug Clark: This is truly a behind the scenes or a how it was done photo. At 25 paces that egg is a pretty small moving target to hit. To add to the difficulty the object was also to miss the photographer, the assistant and also the camera which is directly behind the trajectory of the egg and in the path of the stainless steel ball bearing used for target shooting. John Milligan, a machinist in Detroit, Michigan who was also the “country’s greatest slingshot expert. “He won local fame by shooting the marks out of playing cards, hitting objects in mid air and bagging game in the field.” Joe took John national with his photos documenting his talent and accuracy. To assure accuracy, he has designed his own precision-built aluminum sling, called the Milligan Special. Additional photos and information can be found in the Clark Family Collection. Photos from this series appeared in eight national publications. Here you can find articles in “Life Magazine . February 3, 1961. Pages 80-83. And in a fifteen page pictorial in the book “Photojournalism” by Joe Clark, HBSS. Photo by: Joe Clark, HBSS. Clark PhotoFile: 8001-2

In the image the ball can be seen just hitting the shell and a small amount of the liquid from the egg is spewing out. Narrative by Junebug Clark: This photo was often referred to as "A Near Miss." Something that Slingshot Milligan never did and rare to capture. Consider this... The eggs being tossed up by hand randomly and John has to take aim and fire at the moving, tumbling target and also miss the camera which is positioned directly behind the path of the traveling egg. Lost a lot of eggs. Never a camera.

[Slingshot John Milligan Shooting Through an Egg]

Description: Photograph of an egg in mid-explosion from a slingshot ball. In the image John Milligan stands in the background holding the slingshot in position while the exploded egg takes up the foreground of the image showing crisp detail of the exploded egg. Narrative by Junebug Clark: Check out the Slingshot John Milligan series in Clark Family Collection and you will be amazed and the timing and images captured. This image is taken a fraction of a second after impact and the photo is completely different from the moment of impact. Photo Editors and Photographers were stunned by Joe's ability to precisely capture these images. "How did he do it?" The phone rang off the hook. Even today with laser, sound, photo-cell triggers it would take a crew to photograph a series like this (and they probably would give up and use Photoshop). "Give me the answer," they would ask. Joe's reply, "I used Hillbilly Ingenuity."

[Series of Exploding Eggs]

Description: Photograph containing four photographs of an egg being shot. The eggs were targeted by slingshot shooter John Milligan as the eggs rested atop of the fingers of photographer Joe Clark, HSSS. In the images the eggs are in mid-explosion after being shot through with a stainless steel slingshot ball launched by a Milligan Special in the hands of Slingshot John Milligan. Narrative by Junebug Clark: Three dozen eggs were "Scrambled" by Slingshot Milligan off of the back of Joe Clark's hand at 25 paces. This entire Slingshot Milligan photo series was shot with a 4x5 camera. That meant one shot, one photograph. Timing of the Joe Clark, HBSS photo and of course the aim of Slingshot Milligan had to be coordinated and perfect. Each millisecond that the camera shutter was tripped produces a completely different image. Was the timing perfect? With film cameras you did not know until the film was processed. Would you like to put another, another and another egg on the back of your hand and let Slingshot Milligan scramble it for the sake of the perfect photograph?
