The Aspropyrgos gypsy camp, Athens, Greece, houses some 4,000 gypsies in shacks made of wood and plastic sheeting. There is no electricity, no piped water and no sewerage. Most of the camp's gypsies are unemployed, their traditional seasonal agricultural work taken by cheaper, foreign, migrant labour. Infectious diseases including TB, dysentery and hepatitis are rife. The average life expectancy of Greek gypsies is just 40 years.This photograph was shot on a Leica M6 rangefinder camera using Fuji slide film.
