Product Description

Review

`A classic of documentary photography ... an extraordinary testament to Koudelka's keen eye and darkly romantic imagination ... beautifully printed'
--Photography Book of the Month, The Observer

`Koudelka's emotive essays forge a compelling narrative and reaffirm their place as classic documentary photography. ... To accompany these stunning photographs sociologist Will Guy has updated his essay, which accompanied Gypsies' first publication, and it is a fantastic addition to the book.'
--Black + White Photography

`Classic ... essential for any photography fans' --The Independent

'A precious archival document and a strangely emotional and moving experience'
--f22 Magazine

Gypsies is a weighty book. I m not talking about its size or the fact that it s a hardback it s the potent stares, storyfilled stills and solid chunks of black present in almost every photograph contained within. --Amateur Photographer

I'm photographing the Romani community in Serbia at the moment so was delighted when this new reprint of the images from the 1960s was recently published. Gritty, grainy images speak of their time - both photographically and historically - but also convey the universal through the particular. It is the images that show relationships - families, a group of musicians, father and son (rather than the portraits) that I think are relly powerful and enduring. a collection anyone serious about documentary photography should look at.

I have quite a few monographs, but I keep looking at this one over and over and it gets even better every time. The lifestyle, emotions, families, music, crime, education of Gypsies - it's all there.
