Throughout Britian the traveller tradition continues. Just as the Romanies picked up the horse and vardo from the travelling showmen in the mid-nineteenth century, so a new tradition of people who chose to live on the move has developed. Starting in the late-twentieth century, when spare pockets of land are few and far between, life is a mixture of joy of freedom and struggle against those elements of the settled population who find discomfort in their presence.
Many survive through their skills in crafts, carved mushrooms and painted horseshoes among them.
These photos were taken very close to our base in South Devon, and thanks to Kelly, Cruisy and Lee for letting us see their lives.
