back to the gypsies

found these amazing photos by Iain mckell in a small article in ID last month, they are so magical, they are very much like a lot of the images I found researching for my gypsy love collection, but these ones where from more or less a century ago..Iain mckell started taking the pictures of these nomadic people in 2001, at continued photographing them for 10 years.
I was captivated.

I am now part of the Supermarket Sarah wall tradition, I am so excited, it was such a fun experience, and really enjoyed making a massive riyka inspired wall! spent 2 days painting a wall in the studio, and mucking around with acrylic, see what we got up 2!!
also wanted to thank ludo for great final photo
