COMPTON COWBOYS

The Compton Cowboys are a collective from South Central Los Angeles that has developed a unique inner-city horse ranch in an area notorious for gang violence. The Compton Cowboys give young men and women the opportunity to choose a path other than crime by taking them into the ranch and introducing them to horses.Rhys Frampton together with Wrangler decided to highlight this worthy and deserving initiative by producing a series of images that capture the very essence of the Compton Cowboys. To do this, Rhys immersed himself in their world over a number of days and produced these iconic images.
