This is a stunning collection of images portraying Gypsy people from throughout renowned photographer Pierre Gonnord's career. Large-scale, highly detailed, and dramatically lit, with dark, blank backgrounds; noted French photographer Pierre Gonnord's images recall the paintings of Goya, Caravaggio, Velasquez and other old masters. Gonnord's subjects belong to communities on the margins of conventional society - homeless urban youth, gypsies, tattooed Japanese gang members, and others. Gonnord's art transforms each into a vision of compelling, unexpected beauty and dignity. Face to face with the viewer, these evocative, eloquent portraits are intended, says the artist, "to narrate unique, remarkable stories about our era. Sometimes hostile, almost always fragile, and very often wounded behind the opacity of their masks, they represent social realities and sometimes another concept of beauty." This magnificently illustrated volume brings together images of Gypsy people - the artists most portrayed social group - captured by Gonnord throughout his career.

Pierre Gonnord has photographed prisoners, monks, geisha, urban gangs, yakuza, mentally ill patients, ethnic minorities ... His images are an immense archive of life. Stimulating and revealing, his portraits lead the spectator towards contemplation ? the primordial artistic act.0Gonnord?s surprising language, his characteristic dark backgrounds from which the faces of his protagonists emerge, his accurate capacity to express human feelings, his exhaustive and moving analysis of each mark on the skin, each wrinkle, gesture, tattoo and scar, have turned Pierre Gonnord?s enormous narrative potential into a benchmark when talking about contemporary photographic portrait.
