Damian Le Bas
Nostalgia for a travelling life
Damian Le Bas grew up surrounded by Gypsy history, but his own experience of life on the road was limited to Ford Transit journeys from West Sussex to Hampshire to sell flowers. To better understand his Gypsy heritage, the history of the Britain’s Romanies and the rhythms of their life today, he set out on a journey to discover the atchin tans, or stopping places, the old encampment sites known only to Travellers.
