Anderson & Low - Circus
Private View 17th July 2008 / 18.30 - 20.30
Exhibition continues until 20th September 2008
Print Sales at The Photographers' Gallery presents Circus, a radical development in Anderson & Low’s studies of the relationship between the body, costume, performance and identity. The subjects are members of an international circus company that performs at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, photographed in their stage costumes and make-up in two related series, Portraits and Performance, shot in 2006 and 2008. These photographs demonstrate strength, beauty and skill, and emphasise the duality of the performer.
The publication Circus by Anderson & Low will be launched at that time and will be available through The Photographers' Gallery Bookshop, price £35. Signed prints from £2000, exclusive of vat and framing of course.
