Jamie Johnson's Irish Traveller photographs featured in The Guardian

Photographs from Jamie Johnson's recently published book Growing Up Travelling: Inside the World of Irish Traveller Children are featured in new photo essay in The Guardian. 

Johnson has been photographing the children of Irish Travellers since her first trip to Ireland in 2014. Johnson worked to gain the trust and respect of the Traveller community, who do not usually welcome outsiders, and was granted access to photograph their lives and culture. Growing Up Travelling, published in 2019 by Kehrer, is Johnson's first monograph.
