The Beautiful Stranger
by Julia C Johnson

Determined to communicate her perception of human nature, and her unshakeable belief that our paths are chosen for us, Julia Johnson explores themes surrounding those who are generally perceived to be the minority and whose way of life is often questioned by the larger part of society. The images presented in this project continue to explore these themes. The book creatively documents the apparent role reversal experienced by each community that gravitates to Midsummer Fair over the four days it is held each year, including: A significant local Traveller and Gypsy presence - whose history of attendance dates back over 800 years, the members who consistently work and travel with the fair, the brief preliminary visit by members of the Cambridge Council at the opening ceremony and the families and individuals who travel from near and far to experience this event.
