PetervanBeek's Shop Announcement

Centuries ago dark-skinned nomads,tin makers, musicians and storytellers came from Punjab and Rajastan to the West.
Their history is vague and full of mystery.
Surprisingly, today it still is.
The Roma,commonly knowns as gipsies, live their lives in remarkable ways.
One has a horse, the other a Hummer. Loved by a few, discriminated by many.

Peter van Beek became a documentary photographer in 1997.
He captures lives and feels connected to remote groups and minorities all over the world.
His interest for the Roma started during the Balkanwar, where he met lots of gypsies in Albania.
His photo's are documentary, raw and show fragility and pride.

In 2014 he created a explosive photography book: The good, the bad and the Roma.
