Jamie Johnson has spent 20 years as a professional photographer specializing in documentary projects involving children. She has photographed children from Laos to Cuba, from the Amazon to India. This project, constructed over repeated visits to Ireland, focuses on Irish Travellers, the much-maligned and isolated ethnic minority that has alternately withdrawn from and fought against discrimination for centuries.

Beneath the divisions and distinctions of adult reality, Johnson finds a universality in the world of children and her work celebrates the faces of the next generation of Travellers. These black and white environmental portraits show these kids as they are, both guarded and open, both private and proud, and as they want to be seen, candid and confident, stylish and strong.
