I understand that the intent was not harmful in this photo, but it doesn't change the fact that "gypsy" is actually a slur for Roma peoples in Europe who are still discriminated against and faced with violence and death threats every day. It is not something to take lightly, and while people seem to think that "gypsies" are romantic fortune tellers or whimsical wanderers, the reality is that they are still persecuted to this very day simply based on their race and heritage.

I am a huge fan of girltripped, I just kindly ask that you refrain from using the slur in your work, and try and understand that true "gypsies" are abused peoples that want to be recognized as a legitimate race, not a romanticized fantasy.

Well I have no idea about any of that - the term is used very often in a much different manor, and in this case, it's just pretty song lyrics. I've never heard the term used in a derogatory way before, and I hear it pretty frequently, though of course i'm not questioning your knowledge of it. Sorry to offend, though.. never my intention.

I understand, trust me, it's not like I ever used the word frequently to begin with. I myself have no Roma heritage, but recently I got to meet and talk to someone that does, and I was shocked to hear that some extremists over in Europe still want to "exterminate" the Roma population. Of course, in the United States and in a good portion of the UK, this would be unheard of, but in certain eastern European and mid-European countries, it's far more common than you'd think. :(

CNN has a pretty good article on the basic understanding of Roma persecution, you can read it here: [link]

Have you worked with her before?
I love her poise, and I know many others have said she doesn't look happy/nice, but I think that her expression fits the concept perfectly.

A lovely photo :heart:

Beautiful dress sort of ruined (to me, because I make dresses) by the fact that the dressmaker hadn't bothered to iron the fabric when he/she cut the pattern so you can still see the folds. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be the only one whose gears this grinds because other than that this is an incredible shot with wonderfully soft lighting and beautiful composition (especially the focus through the blur of flowers in the foreground).

I really like the picture, but i don't get the part about gypsy in the title.. i assume all people that never experienced real gypsies take them as a romantic culture even tho they are filthy, not willing to work, usually gaming up other people, stealing and having racist comments ~

she doesn't look nice.

it's not elegant or enchanting or above it, like gypsies and blue moons are supposed to be.
