Outsiders fictionalize the narrative of ‘carnie’ life. My goal is to venture inside their private space and show the circumstance of their life on the move, a kind of temporary rootlessness permeated by camaraderie and even love.
I’m seeking the moment my subjects leave behind their vanity and struggles. A mesmerizing gaze in the lens is magical – for others, a sigh as long as the click of the shutter can reveal a shadowed detail.
This collection is my effort to understand the complicated spirit of these workers. It’s my hope depict this story one photo at a time.
