In 2011 Birte Kaufmann cautiously began to make contact with the travelling community in Ireland, earning their trust and on some occasions living with them. For her portrayal of this unknown world, she needed to be in close contact with the families in order to capture their particular character and to avoid the usual stereotypes. Birte Kaufmann’s combination of reportage and documentary photography offers impressive insights into an extraordinary world.
In 2016 Kettler Verlag published the book ‘The Travellers’.
A limited, numbered and signed special edition, including a print,
was published as well. The last copies will be available at Bildband Berlin!
Birte Kaufmann is since 2016 a member of the Deutsche Fotografische Akademie.
