Blau's photographs (c. 180 black and white pictures) range across the works and days of the Romani instrumentalists, including pictures of parades, parties, weddings, baptisms, and wrestling matches; intimate portraits of the musicians and their families, studies of domestic life and economic activity in the Romani neighborhood and in the surrounding fields. Blau has re-photographed Romani family albums and includes many of these images as well.
The Keils situate the Roma of Iraklia within the cultural, historical, and economic setting of Greek Macedonia, describe a wedding, a baptism party, a Saint's day sequence of performances. In addition, Angeliki Keil has edited eight first-person Romani life stories and a neighborhood
conversation that, taken together, provide an unprecedented Romani perspective on 20th century Greece and Europe.
