circus strength

circus performer demonstrating strength and balance

This is one of a series of shots from a recent cirus party at the Old Vic Tunnels that was organised by Salida Productions. With even lower light than normal and an audience allowed anywhere (therefore often between me and whoever I was trying to shoot), this was one of my most challenging assignments.

Salida Productions held this party to raise money for a production of Macbeth using members of Circo Para Todos, an organisation that works with Colombian street kids and ultimately trains them as professional circus artists. This is Felippe Salas from Circolombia, who started his career at Circo Para Todos.
