John Ferguson's multimedia project The Forgotten Cowboys sheds light on important and underrepresented aspect of American history: the black cowboy.
Through photography and a documentary film in progress, Ferguson hopes to represent a lifestyle that has been centuries in the making. To do so, he traveled from his home in the U.K. to the U.S. and met with professionals in the field to witness firsthand the rodeos where these cowboys put their skills to the test.
During the shoot, John interviewed Kevin Woodson, a retired bullfighter and Cowboys of Colour Rodeo MC, who shared his knowledge on the history of black cowboys.
