Title: Roma rising / Romské obrozeni.
Description: Praha, Argo, 2005. 27.5 x 21 cm. 205 pp. Bound with dustwrapper. With 100 b/w portraits. Portraits and profiles of 100 Roma people from the Czech Republic by the American photographer Chad Evans Wyatt . Text in Czech and English. - Consider the 'Gypsy' photograph as text.

Often, this is presented in garish colour, furthering the isolation of those pictured. - Romarising offers a different view [...] Chad Evans Wyatt. []. - Fine copy
