This article is dedicated to the Czech photographer, Josef Koudelka, and his book, "Gypsies," a classic in documentary photography. "Gypsies" contains a series of images Koudelka took between 1962 and 1971 in the former Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary, France, and Spain. Here, he was able to masterfully depict the simplicity of the gypsy lifestyle, never presenting their situation as a social problem but instead showing their lives as a mix of joyfulness and wonder, sorrow and mystery.
