Gypsies without Borders
January 28 through April 19, 2013 | Second Floor
Photographer Ellie Ivanova began this project in the summer of 2010, with the mass deportations of Bulgarian and Romanian Roma living in France to their countries of origin. The project explores how Roma people in several Bulgarian cities have carved protective spaces and how they negotiate the constrictions of modern society while living on its margins and creatively adopting its paraphernalia.
Ellie Ivanova is a fine art and documentary photographer originally from Bulgaria and currently based in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX. With a background in literary research, her photographic interest is the human experience. www.ellieivanovaphotography.com
