The Circus Comes to Coney (c)2009 Lauren Curtis

This computer enhanced photo was shot on a bright, sunny, Summer day in Coney Island…and was manipulated to show the sometimes dark and possibly sinister side of the circus and sideshow! I’ve always been fascinated by the wild costumes, crazy acts and almost Victorian decadence of the circus/sideshow scene and wanted to portray that in this image.
