Further research

I was searching for photos of Gypsy camps when I came across photographer Robin Hammond and a set of images he had taken at a Roma Gypsy camp in Italy. These Gypsys are not wanted in Italy and there is alot of hostility towards them. In fact, two sisters from the Roma Gypsys drowned on a beach, however the public ignored there bodies covered by blankets, and continued to enjoy the beach.

I love the colours in these images, and the culture and way of life theses images portray. I am quite interested in travellers and this has fascinated me further.

This is great documentary photography within a community.
