#21 Gypsy Ladies…..and their babies

Here are four images of what I call Gypsies from India. Not really sure if that is the right term…but they are wandering folks, and kind of dress up brightly and sing and dance on the streets. Hope you like them. They are not works of art, but presented here to show a documentary style display of such folk.  I was attracted to their smiles and their spirit.

    I think the women, and their children, *are* works of art — and you’ve captured that well. So lively in spirit, outgoing, rich in color and decoration.

    It could be interesting to challenge the idea of a boundary between “documentary” and “fine art”. What is that, really?
