Disko by Andrew Miksys
After visiting Lithuania with his old man and spending time some time with the local gypsy population, better and more correctly known as the Roma, Seattle-based photographer Andrew Miksys realised it was ripe for the picking. He successfully applied for a grant and subsequently went back to Lithuania armed with his camera. 

As the Roma are the subject of much negative press across Europe, Miksys understandably initially had trouble gaining their trust. But after time and some help, the Roma people allowed him into their lives, giving Myksis the chance to photograph and shine a light on an otherwise pretty hidden community. 

It's all pretty weird stuff but his micro-series Disko, which features a Roma nightclub (except it looks in shot to be operating during the day?), is reaaaaally weird. It makes realise you ain't been to a seedy bar until you've been to a Roma disko. The DJ booth is one of the most awesome and terrifying we've ever seen and the blood on tiles is also seriously creepy.

We're pretty sure requests are met with a knife in the face.
