The circus theme has been done before, but the Saltare In Banco photo series takes the freaky and cheery elements out of it for a more melancholy capture of this spectacle. It also focuses on portrait shots of the entertainers rather than captures of a whole circus act being performed.

Shot by Montreal-based fashion photographer Pierre Manning, the Saltare In Banco photo series is still highly stylized and full of theatrics; qualities of a carnival that many people often try to capture. Putting a more youthful face on the circus theme, Manning shoots a younger generation of performers who appear to have become stifled by their lot in life rather than revelling in the debauchery that often accompanies such carnivals.
