Gypsy, Romany, Manouche… Traveling between Arles and Les Saintes Maries de la Mer, the photographer Vanessa Gilles came into contact with women of diverse origins. These women reveal themselves in her images and gaze at us with dignity. Fixed in black and white, the photographs seem to deliver a timeless message that extols pride and attachment to one’s roots. Children are playing in front of the camera seemingly carefree, while women eye it with a stare that says a lot about the years of discrimination which is still omnipresent.
