#42 – Rom

Shutka–the name means “trash” –is Europe’s largest settlement of Rom, a people also known as Gypsies, nomads, and dirty thieving tinkers. For issue n° 42 Colors spent three weeks there getting to know a few of the 50,000 inhabitants. With a Romani mayor, a Romani lawyer and total freedom to speak the Romanes language, Shutka should be a promised land for Gypsies. But walk down the unpaved streets, use the outside toilets, step over the trash on the streets, and you’ll see it’s still a dump.
