69 Circus Photo Shoots

From Sultry Circus Vixens to Sensuous Circus Shoots

— September 1, 2013 — Fashion
This collection of circus photo shoots demonstrates a trend in fashion photography that is over the top to say the least. Many editorials focus on a vintage or grungy perspective while others are strictly sensual. The carnival theme includes clown like makeup and accessories in addition to brightly colored clothing and themed photography.

These circus photo shoots have taken a number of different directions in addition to caravans. This vagabond element translates into somber and striking visuals. This stands in contrast to the happy and fun perception many have of the circus. There are also multiple references to ring leaders and the exotic, as circuses often showcase the bizarre and unusual finds from their travels.
