Homelands Roma update

i’ve been working on my Homelands commission, for which I’m spending time with a Czech Roma family in the North East of England, for over a year now. I’ve worked in fits and starts – over recent months issues and commitments on both sides have prevented me from visiting as much as I would have liked, but perhaps this will prove to be some useful headspace. Let’s see what the next few months hold…my intention is to have this work where it needs to be by the end of summer but sometimes you can’t force these things. i don’t want to be the kind of photographer/journalist who imposes and works without sensitivity and instinct.
