Elvira and Me
Elvira and Me is about one young womanâ€™s two lives. Her family in Romania call her Elvira but in England she is known by the name on her passport, Ramona. It is a collaboration, with photography by Ciara Leeming and words by Ramona Constantin.Â To read the book,Â click here.
I continue to work with Ramona and have broadened this work into an open-ended documentary project featuring a number of other Roma people’s stories, thanks to Arts Council support and a commission from Newcastle’s Side Gallery. Please see my Roma Britain project websiteÂ here.
