If you ever wondered where circus performers went during the off season, or simply for a bit of rest, the Barnumville photo series will be incredibly informative. A surreal yet serious shoot, it tells the story of a town in northwest Florida called Barnumville.

Dark and eerie, the Barnumville photo series was shot by Matt Hoyle, who is known best for his storytelling portraiture work. Part of his larger fascination with circus performers in general, the Barnumville photo series is a more stylized imaginative exploration of this culture. In fact, he did a previous Barnumville shoot that focused on real-life portraits of these performers. Stats for Circus City Captures Trending: Older & Warm
