An In Depth Look Into The Mysterious And Fascinating World Of Modern Day Gypsies

A whole other world you had no idea about until now.
An In Depth Look Into The Mysterious And Fascinating World Of Modern Day Gypsies

In today's fast paced world of technological dominance and work/school-stress, the modern dream is to throw it all away and run out into the wild countryside to live a wild life free from social inhibitions. To the majority of us that lifestyle will only be a dream, but to the people photographed in Ian McKell's photo series New Gypsies the nomadic life is a reality.

For over ten years McKell followed the travelling community known as the "Peace Convoy", a small society of people who have rejected modern occupations and transportation. Blazing a trail across Europe, McKell has authentically documented the strange yet mystifying lifestyle these people lead, leaving out many of the typical prejudices associated with the 'gypsy' lifestyle.

Take a look at McKell's work below, and see if the nomad's way of life is really what it's cracked up to be.
