Intimate Portraits of Gypsies Recreated in the Style of the Old Masters

In his series The Dream Goes Over Time, Madrid-based photographer Pierre Gonnord recreates the Old Master painting style in this timeless portrait series featuring Portuguese Alentejo gypsies. Gonnord, who seeks to use art to give voices to marginalized people, frames his subjects as royal figures, and they respond with piercing, regal gazes. Many of the subjects have never been photographed before, and the pictures become defining images for them.
