New gypsies ....

Tuesday, October 11

"The New Gypsies" will soon be on my bookshelf. Roaming the countryside as a gypsy would be a crazy adventure. Imagine the freedom! In this book, photographer Iain McKell followed the Horse Drawn Travelers, off-and-on, for 10 years. Their culture is built around the ideas of freedom, nature and living a low carbon footprint lifestyle. The movement began in the mid-1980s when a group of Post-Punk Anti-Thatcher protesters left London for the English countryside. They now live in horse-drawn caravans. "The New Gypsies" was released in April.
