In this first iBook edition of her landmark 1976 study Janine Wiedel transports us to the heart of the Irish Traveller community of the 1970s. Through words and photographs amassed over five years spent with the Travellers, we are offered a window into a transitional moment in the history of this resilient people. First presented as an exhibition at the Photographers Gallery in 1976 and as a book by Latimer Press the same year, the new iBook offers a long overdue opportunity to reconsider this sensitive portrait of a community in transition.
