CIRCUS!

In 2006, I discovered a wooden crate that turned out to be a box of wonder. It was filled with forgotten 16m film footage that my grandmother had shot between 1927 and 1945. 

The films inspired me to celebrate my grandmother's vision with a cross generational artistic collaboration. Working from still frames in the films that my grandmother shot in the back lots of the Ringling Circus in Sarasota, Florida and in Rochester, New York, I have reinterpreted magical moments and enlarged them into photogrphic prints.
