Publisher's Description
The circus is in town! This exciting new volume showcases the thrilling circus photography of the American photographer Frederick W. Glasier, who photographed the circus during its 1890-1925 heyday. Now considered as masterful a chronicler of time and place as his contemporaries Atget and Sander, Glasier made photos which bring the three-ring pageant of the circus to life with an irresistible narrative rhythm. With 73 gloriously reproduced images from the 1,700 glass plate negatives from the collections of the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art at Florida State University, informative anecdotal captions by the circus historian (and co-editor of this volume) Deborah Walk, and a fascinating essay by Luc Sante.
