Pierre Manning's Saltare In Banco Portraits are Full of Melancholy Myst

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.
