Big Apple Circus

Big Apple Circus

 

I no longer enjoy seeing animals performing in circuses, except domesticated animals like dogs or horses; I find the use of wild animals a sad form of exploitation that we could do without. But when I shot this photograph 20 years ago I was only thinking of getting a good shot without using flash, which is of course not permitted in the circus. I used Fuji Neopan 1600 film and shot at around 1/60 sec at f4, using the bright circus floods and waiting until the performers struck a pose.
