The Last Travelers

Eszter Halasi, United Kingdom

I started documenting the Last Travellers in the GRT ( Gypsy, Roma, Travellers) community last year, with the aim of archiving those living on the road who stick to their nomadic lifestyle, and the traditional traveller lifestyle, despite the fact that the government constantly harasses them with regulations, wants to force travellers to settle down.

Jayney and her children have been on the road for years. Her husband is a “showman”. They have been wandering from fair to fair for years, where they play music. They make a living from it. The children visibly love this way of life. For them, this is freedom and peace.
