Jan Yoors, Flemish-American artist, photographer, painter, writer and tapestry creator, ran away to live with and to photograph the Romany gypsies at the age of 12. A few years later, he wrote a book called The Gypsies about his experiences with them. In 1971, Yoors picked up where he left off with The Gypsies and wrote another book entitled Crossing; he also took all of the photographs for the book Only One New York. His art ranged from paintings to tapestries, from photography to sculptures.
