„Genia in white“

from the gallery of Peter van Beek

Genia is posing in front of her tent. The Roma in Europe sometimes live a horrible life, yet keeping hope and a smile on their face.
Neighborhood in Bucharest, Romania

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, in 2005 it still is. The Roma, commonly known as gipsies, live their lives in remarkable ways. One has a horse, the other a Hummer. Loved by few, discriminated by many.
