Historical Context:
Photographer Alen MacWeeney was born in Dublin, Ireland at the beginning of World War II. One of his earliest series, shot with his trusty Leica camera, included Irish travellers who were semi-nomads. They were also called Tinkers. in 2000, these images were turned into a movie, "Traveller," with MacWeeney as one of the directors.
