About ‘Gypsies’:

His project Gypsies looks at the Gypsy & Traveller community in the UK. It is a long running project that looks at a fiercely marginalised community that are often depicted in a negative aspect in the media. The aim of the project aims to look at the real/ more mundane aspects of the community rather than the hyper exaggerated idea of the gypsy community that are often talked about.
