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.
