Danish photographer, Joakim Eskildsen, traveled with writer, Cia Rinne, through the 7 Roma countries (Hungary, India, Greece, Romania, France, Russia, and Finland), photographing this project for seven years. Often staying with families for long periods in order to learn about their life, their culture, and their situation, The Roma Journeys is a very personal document of these encounters, giving a contemporary view of the lives of the Roma people and their situation today.

Que maravilha as fotos!!!

"... E de novo acredito que nada do que é
importante se perde verdadeiramente
Apenas nos iludimos, julgando ser donos das coisas,
dos instantes e dos outros.
Comigo caminham todos os mortos que amei,
todos os amigos que se afastaram,
todos os dias felizes que se apagaram.
Não perdi nada, apenas a ilusão de que tudo podia ser meu para sempre."

Miguel Sousa Tavares

Desejo uma linda semana.
Abraços com carinho.
