Matt and Sheila Salo are historians of Gypsy culture; Sheila Salo wrote the register for the the Carlos de Wendler-Funaro Gypsy Research Collection. The Salos have personal contacts among Gypsy groups, and they made these photographs to document Gypsy customs, clothing, and rituals. Subjects include weddings, baptisms, and feasts.
