Real Life Gypsies From Around the World (20 pics)

The photographer Patrick Cariou spent and entire decade following a variety of Gypsies as they move throughout Europe. He took pictures of French, Slovakian, Romanian, Turkish, Iranian, Afghan and Indian gypsies. While most seem fairly poor, the French gypsies travel in style. The result of the photographer's work is shocking.

With Gypsies, Patrick retraces in reverse the migration of the Rom people (the Gypsies' own term for themselves) from Western to Eastern Europe, through the Middle East, and ultimately to India, the home of their ancestors. The original journey was an epic, thousand-year odyssey.

I have to deal with these people all day! Are they gonna pickpocket me? Are they gonna scam me? Are they gonna steal the helmet off my motorbike? Are they gonna sneak up on me while I'm taking money out of the ATM? Are they gonna try to sell me stolen goods? Are gonna they play that horrible music in the metro? Are they gonna beg for money by renting someone else's baby? Are they gonna etc. etc. etc....

very hard to get a sense of their culture from these scattered images- most of them could be random people from the countries in question.

i remember images of the gypsies' painted wagons / trailers pulled by horses. they were quite beautiful. but i guess that age is long ended.

They are a plague in Europe. I have never met anyone who ever had anything good to say about them.
The only contact I have had with this scum is by being robbed, pick pocketed or beggars.

And apart to everything I said, they are also very violent. If you are able to fight one off, they call their peeps and then your fucked, but not fucked like getting slapped, I mean fucked like getting stabbed or shot. They really believe in that whole vendetta thing and not minding going to prison for it. Them fuckers ain't gonna get any respect from me or from anyone else I know.

the painted wagons and horses certainly existed. there are many pictures and accounts of them by ordinary people.

anyway, reading a little the WP entry, it looks like gypsies are some of the most persecuted people in history. their alleged anti-social attitudes make a lot of sense given the treatment they seemed to have received through the ages. maybe you europeans who are complaining so much about them may be getting back what your ancestors first gave to the gypsies in the first place. just a thought, anyway.

Why u're so racists? im a romanian gipsy myself and I work to make a living, I support my mother and my little sister and my brother 2daughters, I went to school and as u can see I know how to write english and I never studied english language in school, I learned from tv and cartoons while I was small, I had a hard time in school cuz people like u were racists there too and everyday I had to hear names like crow and nasty and dirty gipsy, it wasnt so easy kids on my age to ignore me cuz their mothers dont want them to make friendship with a gipsy like me. I started working since I was 14yrs old and studying in the same time, stop judging other people, we r not like all of u, we have our traditions, u will not see any gipsy girl/woman getting raped or going with different men, or u will not see us wearing almost nothing on us like u're women does .. respect other people, I dont think all of u are perfect!!!
