This project I aimed to produce a documentary series focused on a Gypsy travelling community, based on the concept or notion of sense of place and how this relates to a modern day community that settles in one place for a particular amount of time. My interest comes from capturing ideas about where people come from and the connections they have with a place. In particular, photographs that capture human experiences. I intended to visit this community and photograph a series of considered photographs that respond to a particular culture. In a way the images I have produced are a documentation of a travelling communities existence at a place at a particular time. The images captured are highly constructed with the intent and purpose to comment on a status of an individual and community within a contemporary society.
