Marginalized by society or nomadic and heir of a measureless culture? The history of the gypsies still stumbles around deep controversies and its condition remains tied in a complex lacing of mysteries and doubts. Our imprecise historical knowledge about his theme, tell us that this enigmatic people came originally from northwest India and, for reasons still unexplained nowadays, were forced to leave the territory, becoming nomadic. Their first steps in Europe occurred during XII century, but their presence in Portugal only dates from mid XV century. Six centuries later, gypsies are still associated with extra-sensorial and divine capabilities, and from a social point of view, are an ethnic minority that either self-exclude themselves or gets marginalized by our society. “Nomadic Sight” is a documental photographic project raised from the need to acknowledge and assimilate different sights and realities of everyday’s life nowadays, providing a different approach and perspective on these enigmatic people.
