Photographer's Note

This is part of a family of gipsies. They lived near the forest, in improvised houses (see behind them), during the season of mushroms. They are 'nature' people, and their crop of mushroms is signifiant - they sell the mushroms to pick-up centers for big companies, and make a living of it. They stay there for about 2 months/year. During the winter, they have houses in villages.

I'll probable post tomorrow a second picture, with that community - they were some 100 people there. They build like a small village of their own, with their own rules, near a regular village.

It was difficult to take this pictures - I stopped the car, took some photos from far away, as I was kindda affraid to enter on my own that community. Still, after they saw my camera, some of them agreed to let me take their pictures. This guy on the left, he wanted me to take a photo of all his family. He was proud to show me his kids, and was posing like some important person (I took him a portrait, he was very proud).

The photo is now very well framed, I know. I took out about 80% of the color.
