`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'
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

This is a book that has taught me that I too would have to find the courage, the skill and determination to win the confidence of the peoples I would wish to record. This community must have presented a tough assignment which he has captured beautifully. The individual images are a lesson in how to compose an image to bring out the very nuances of the personality and environment in which these proud people live.
This book represents a fine example of historical recordings of a people and one in which I am beginning to just dip into to simply enjoy the individual prints.
