Today’s photos collection is about Clowns and Mimes, performers who constantly walk the line between tragedy and comedy, but from entirely different directions.
Clowns are the comic side of dramic and consequently are known for their colored wigs, flamboyent makeup, outlandish costumes, unusual footwear, and, of course, their iconic red noses. A staple of every circus, their performance loud and absolutely raked with tensions and suspense, but always with the promise of boisterous comic release.
The mimes are the other side of the coin. They don’t come to you but rather draw you, using their bodies to scream in silence, at times comical, but more often imbued with the suspense of a great magician, giving solid properties to thin air with their deft skills.
