I am not a big fan of clowns. I often found them scary looking an uncomfortable. Except for the beautiful clown character Pierrot. Oooh how beautiful he is. This shoot is inspired by him.
Circus artist Jackie Le and I had a fun day creating these images. I made Jackie jump in and out of big bracken bushes, climb trees and rolling around on the ground in various positions. I knew this would not be a problem for this flexible contortion artist though hanging high in the air in aerial hoops or unwrapping herself in silk ribbons from the ceiling is what she normally does. But we did not count on mama goose with teenagers almost attacking us thinking we were way to close for her liking : )
And not to forget the angry goose
