Around a Moldavian Roma Community.
A closed community who welcomed us with genuine kindness and hospitality.
During the Gypsy Lore Society International Conference in Moldova (2015) Dr. Ion Duminica organised a small group to be given access to visit to a large Moldavian Roma community. We were greeted with genuine hospitality. Lavish homes were proudly presented. The Roma’s social and economic status was very different to those I had previously met in Transylvania. This visit provided a wealth of photographic opportunities. Images taken, blurred the boundaries of portraiture and reportage.
