blame it on my wild heart

"From 2000 to 2006, Joakim Eskildsen and Swedish writer Cia Rinne undertook a seven-country journey with the intent of exploring the lives of the Roma, a subgroup of the Romani people who live scattered throughout Central and Eastern Europe. The photographic series and corresponding book are called The Roma Journeys.

The Roma were originally called gypsies when they first arrived in Europe over 500 years ago, as they were mistakenly believed to have come from Egypt. Today, although spread across countries and continents, the Roma share a common biological, cultural and linguistic history that can be connected with certain dialects of northwest India. Although traditionally known as nomads, the Roma largely live in settled communities, but their cultural history is complicated and enigmatic.”
