Urban Gypsies

By (author) Paul Wenham-Clarke


  • A rare look inside a close-knit community of travelers living under the A40 flyover in London
Full Description

The Westway, a mundane and ugly slab of tarmac connecting London to south England’s motorways, is also the roof of a group of travelers’ homes. Paul Wenham-Clarke spent many months gaining the trust of the community’s leaders here for unrivalled access to this otherwise secret world. His resulting portraits, accompanied by quotes, are intimate, arresting and at times strangely comic. They reveal how strong and unique the identity of these people is, even when surrounded by the sweeping currents of London.
