romarising is a photo document by the American photographer, Chad Evans Wyatt, who previously published 101 Artists in the Czech Republic. The latter won the "Best Thematic Photo book of 2000" prize at the 2001 Prague Book Fair. romarising presents more than one hundred individuals, citizens of the Czech Republic, whose education, work, professional approach, commitment and lifestyle dispel common stereotype of this pan-national ethnic group.
Apart from its artistic value, the book makes a socio-political statement, the first such assemblage of Romani portraits. The images are accompanied by a short questionnaire, answered by each participant at the time of portraiture.
Both books are now unavailable from the publisher, but can be found readily from vendors such as AbeBooks and Amazon.
