Life In A Romany Settlement

With some 12 million people spread across the continent, the Roma are Europe's largest ethnic minority -- and also among its most disadvantaged. Romany communities in Eastern Europe are often isolated settlements with crumbling infrastructure on the outskirts of cities and towns. German documentary photographer Bjoern Steinz spent time in some of the Romany communities in eastern Slovakia and filed these photos. More of Steinz's work can be seen at his website.
