Water for Elephants
I first got the idea to do a circus themed photoshoot in April 2015 when I went to the Ringling Brothers Mansion. And 10 months later after research, finding costumes, and help from friends, I finally finished. (Other inspirations came from the movie "Water for Elephants" and the book
"The Night Circus")
Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, step right up to the greatest show on earth!
Even during the depression in the 1930's, when the circus was at its lowest point, there was still a continued interest. The performers would help the audience step out of the reality of the Great Depression and into the illusion of the circus.
