DESCRIPTION

The exhibition forms a unique sync of the gypsies in Hungary and India showcasing the similarities yet the distinctions in them. Depicting the wandering life-style of the Gypsy tribes of Rajasthan with beauty, dignity and intense emotions, while giving a more factual ethnographical 'report' on the already settled Hungarian Gypsy community of Szablocs-Szatmár-Bereg county is the main characteristics of Normantas' photographs. One can see the two groups of pictures as a comparative study through the lens of this wandering photographer.
