I am in Albania now working on my Diploma project for my school in Denmark. I originally came here to work on a project about gender issues in the country, which proved to be very difficult for many reasons. While working on that project I came upon a Roma camp on Lake Shkoder and after talking to the owner of the land for a few days he has allowed me to photograph here for the next few weeks. Albania has been great so far. I have spent my time divided between the countryside and the cities. The country is one of extremes. Poor and rich, beautiful and ugly, old and new. My trip here will be for a total of 5 weeks and when I am done I plan on making a book about my experiences living in the Roma camp. Here are few of my photos from the first 3 weeks here. This is one of my largest posts ever, primarily because many people have expressed that they know nothing about Albania.
