Circolombia 2015 at Showzam Circus Town Festival Blackpool, UK Showzam 2015
Starting the Project: It is February 2018 but 2015 was the year, I met the retired foot juggler one of the inspirations behind the Time and Tide, Retired Performers Project. It was also the year I photographed Circolombia. I saw Nina (the retired foot juggler) again this week, in fact, I had breakfast with her family, she is getting ready for me to interview her on audio and have her photo taken, she told me a few tales, including one about Princess Margaret.
26 February 2018
The process of interviewing and photographing participants will last over 9 months. Building relationships and talking to performers who have a relationship to Blackpool takes time. Tomorrow I head back to the circus to photograph a Circusette who performed as Charlie Cairoli's assistant.
