Elena Nazare took this photo on a trip to Carpathians where she found herself in a Romani camp. She spent time with her new friends there: "they gave me food and drink - they were amazing people."
Elena's grandfather is Hungarian Roma - and her boyfriend is artist Paul Hitter who makes Romani inspired paintings. Together they are inspired by the Roma culture.
Here is the film Elena made of her time with the people you see in this photo:




don't fear death
melissa muses (or maia, you choose)


wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
