Oksana Bischin – See me/ See me not

See me/ See me not is the photography project of Birmingham based Romanian photographer Oksana Bischin.
The display showcases portraits of the Kalderash Roma community of Brateiu, Transylvania, which the author documented while working on a project in 2016.

The Kalderash Roma community of Brateiu, Transylvania is one of the few remaining groups that preserve a long line of Roma traditions and crafts including hat moulding and coppersmithing – work that has actually landed their name of Kalderash (Căldărari-Romanian for ‘pot’ ). Some of the more established crafters in the community have since been internationally recognised for their craft and excellence which opened a gate for international showrooms at makers festivals , collaborations with industrial designers and even exhibitions.
