We live together with Romani people everywhere. Although their lifestyles are different, they have a very colorful life. There are musicians, artists, waste collectors, tinsmiths, broom sellers and other people among them. While I was walking around their neighborhoods to take photos, the broom sellers caught my attention. Some families make a living with this job. They produce and prepare the brooms that every home and workplace needs. In this photo presentation, I tried to visually introduce broom sellers with examples from neighborhood life.
