No One Dies At A Gypsy Wedding
Netherlands

An encounter with the Roma in Istanbul provided the impetus for my photographic project. Their lifestyle and their ability to survive in a rough environment like Istanbul attracted me to them. I started this project in 2001. During the following 14 years I have been photographing the members of one romani family. I saw their children grow up and witnessed important events and stages in their lives.
