Landevejsriddere, Hjallerup Marked 2006

"Landevejsriddere" is a danish name of vagabonds, who make living on begging money for the next beer and cigaret, always walking on the roads summer and winter typically always with their best friends; their dogs. Has always been visitors to the annual Hjallerup Marked (near Aalborg).
It is always extremely difficult to get close to them, as they are very shy. They were once ordinary people with wives, husbands, homes and whatever we connect with a normal life as we know it. Maybe a certain thing happened, that made them fall down to the bottom of the barrel.

It took me one hour just to take the first picture then 3 hours for the following in this serie - a good exercise to "melt slowly into the sorroundings".

Every face tells a story, but these few faces tells 1000´s of stories!

Everything they own is the clothes, that they are wearing! Denmark is said to have world´s best social security system and is one of the richest countries in the world! Is it so????

Hjallerup Marked is Denmark´s oldest cattle- and horsemarket (over 250 years old) besides being Northern Europe´s largest with over 200.000 visitors each year.
