We visited (with guidance from some Slovak locals) a gypsy camp.
The first moment we arrived they where not happy to see us and kept their distant .
But, when we began to give out the candy to the kids the hostility disappeared immediately.
Next thing, we even had to ceep them at a distance, they all wanted to be photographed, they pulled our clothes and begged to be allowed to stand in the picture.

pandka So impressive... Looks like their government forgot about them... I believe it is a little better in my country, but I am not quite sure.

miltonjacob very nice. #5 and #9 are my favs. (seeing -Roma in the title i thought u visited Roma without my knowledge :) At least here in Rome, they use 'Rom' for Gypsies.)
miltonjacob · 2010-05-19: 15:52
djnana Larry had told me what an amazing post this was, Sandra. I must agree - these are remarkable portraits of a people we know so little about. Thank you for the effort you put forth to open our eyes to their culture. Excellent!
djnana · 2010-05-19: 16:28
Jarvo Neat work - so sweets are an essential piece of photographers kit :-) 1 5 & 9 are my favourites - I prefer the close up look.
Jarvo · 2010-05-19: 16:33
eljapa Dit is nu fotografie, prachtig hoor. Heel wat beter dan een bloemeke of een vogel..
1 5 en 9 voor mij de mooiste al oogt 1 een beetje onrustig, weet zelf niet of ik eea zou rechttrekken en of dat beter zou worden. Zelfde geldt een beetje voor de blauw zweem in 9, zou je eens kunnen proberen om weg te halen maarr ik vind dit zo mooi... ben er vet jaloers op.. Prachtig!
eljapa · 2010-05-19: 16:51
????? Terrific set of cool candid shots :-)
????? · 2010-05-19: 17:21
eternity65 Ik moet Jan gelijk geven hoor San, dit is fotografie!! en ja, ik ben ook jaloers :-/
Prachtige set!!! En ook voor mij springt 1-5 en 9 er uit(maar 2 heeft toch ook wel iets speciaal hoor). Aangrijpend, droevig om zien, maar oooo zo verdomd mooi.
5 gaat mijn favorieten in voor heel deze prachtige set. sjapoo!!
Wanneer ga je terug? ik sponsor met plezier minstens een bak koeken, zolang je maar met dergelijke foto's terugkomt :-)
eternity65 · 2010-05-19: 18:36

jennye · 2010-05-19: 20:42
