Los Salazar


“Los Salazar” is a photographic essay about the roles of women in a traditional gypsy family. In the gypsy culture marriage comes during the adolescence. Marriage is celebrated as a rite of passage. Then the young woman enters the clan as woman and future mother. Gypsy identity is based in perpetuating a cultural legacy, overviewed by the group’s authority: the patriarch.

Juan Antonio Salazar, the patriarch of this gypsy family opened me the doors of his home. This series is the result of seven years of friendship.
