The photography of Matt Hoyle is a must-see for anyone who enjoys fine photography. I just love his sharp black-and-white renditions of circus performers in his 'Barnumville' series.
The assortment of clowns is absolutely entrancing, even though I dislike clowns. Matt Hoyle is a commercial and fine art photographer located in the Big Apple.
Implications - Our renewed interest in retro forms of entertainment has breathed new life into the circus. Pop stars such as Pink and Britney Spears use circus themes in their live performances and albums, and the circus' whimsical nature lifted our spirits during the recession. Circus-themed photography continues this phenomenon by pushing this performance-based medium into gallery-worthy art.
