French Cowboy

French Cowboy was born in 2012 from the shared love for photography by Mia Macfarlane and Julien Crouïgneau. The artists have a strong desire to create their own images enriched by their experiences and cultures.

Julien is French and Mia was born in South Africa with Swedish and American nationality. Mia graduated from MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) and the London College of Printing. She began her career as a painter and exhibited in several galleries in Europe and the USA. Julien studied design at ESDI (the School of Industrial Design) in Paris. Straight out of school, he had the opportunity to work with Philippe Starck. He then continued a very successful career as a product designer art director.

It was only when the Julien and Mia came together in 2012 that they both were drawn to photography and now in the artists words "Every day is an opportunity to create and we live to shoot!" We don't stop creating. A the end of every shoot we plan the next one, and then the next one. The world inspires us and we want to inspire it"
