Photographer's Note

His name is Istvan. He is a gipsy and lives with his family (wife, daughter and nephew) on a field near the Poienii De Jos village in Bihor Romania.

They live alone, in a wooden barrack, with the comfort offered by the nature. They take care of the village's horde of cows and he builds rod baskets for living. They are very poor but very welcoming in their lives.

I was pasing by them and i asked them if i can take some photos, and they gladly welcomed me in their primitve home. They offered a lunch, they were very glad that we were in their house. In the future i will post more photos from this place, because it's worth it.

When i was leaving, he kissed me on my cheeks and he was happy that i didn't had any bad attitude because of his action (in my country there is a big sense of racism towards gipsy nationality, but i'm not having a problem related to nationalities, we all are humans no matter the colour of our skin).

I used HDR from 6 pictures with different exposures (-9, -6, -3, 0, 3, 6, 9) and a little PP in Photoshop.

Hope you like it.

Thank you for looking,
Marin
