This Aperture edition is the classic collection of Josef Koudelka's photographs of gypsies--his portrait of the nomadic peoples of his native Czechoslovakia. "Koudelka's photographs aim at a distillation of a pattern of human values: a pattern that involves large gesture, brave style, precious camaraderie and bitter loneliness. The pattern and texture of his pictures form the silent equivalent of an epic drama."--John Szarkowski.
