The Beautiful Stranger
It is acknowledged by few that Travellers form the largest ethnic minority in the South East of England, and indeed their existence has mostly been edited out of British history. This denial naturally impacts on the well-being of the Traveller community and leads to a sociological misrepresentation of the identity of Travellers. In order to capture a glimpse of the lives of the Travellers Julia documented Midsummer Fair in Cambridge, its tradespeople and visitors, over the five days it is held. Midsummer fair is over 80 years old and continues to attract Gypsy/ Traveller communities.
