Artist's Description

Sometimes I am a photographer as well as a painter especially at times when I have found it difficult to devote the time to painting that it requires. All of my photographic work was taken with a SLR camera, Pentax or Canon on film and developed and printed by myself.
I spent twenty odd years working with Travellers, Gypsies, Showpeople and Circus folk. I was lucky to be able to photograph them in their own environment and be ‘a fly on the wall’.
This is Missie and Goldie Boy on a Gypsy site in Sheffield in the 1980’s. Life was and still is very hard for Gypsy women, they often look a lot older than their years and become worn down with child bearing and the struggle to live on the margins of a often hostile society. Missie was a victim to this harshness as she eventually took her own life.
