The Gathering of the Juggalos photo series captures a subculture that is at once intriguing and disturbing. An annual wild weekend of music for dedicated fans of Insane Clown Posse or any Psychopathic Records hip hop group, it brings out what some people might consider 'the crazies.' Walking around near-nude (or completely) with eerily painted faces, each and every attendee channels their inner dark clown for the event.

Shot by photographer Daniel Cronin, the Gathering of the Juggalos photo series appears to attempt to humanize these fans through honest portraits. Having attended three gatherings thus far, it is clear that there is more to them than first meets the eye. Perusing through the series is certainly enlightening.
