Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, France

2012. Piotr Wójcik The crowded town market, music is coming from every lane, crush on the camping sites, camps on streets, noise, neigh. Horses are eating nearby. That’s how Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer looks like once a year. Pilgrims come to the procession that sets off from the church and goes to the coast. They are carrying a dark, wooden statue upon their shoulders.

2011. Piotr Wójcik It looks like favelas or refugees camps. Trailers, huts, shacks, shelters built with sheet of plywood, with just anything. No infrastructure. Just a miserable existence. How many Roma live like this, you don’t know, because no one knows how many there are.
