The Last Show, a fitting photo shoot name for the last post of the Crystal Smith Art Series.
Crystal and her sister Holly (featured in last weeks Mermaid photo shoot) worked for months prior to this shoot scavenging thrift shops to collect costumes and props for the perfect look. The result? A simultaneously fun and sad photo collection of clowns, acrobats, a strongman, a bearded lady, a ballerina and, of course, the ringmaster.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce to you, the members of the Sad Circus:
Can you spot me? Hint: I’m wearing my pointe shoes
Crystal’s explanation of the idea behind The Last Show:
It is a portrait of circus performers after their very last closing show. Melancholy and sad, the breaking up of a family.
So there you have it, the last installment of the Crystal Smith art series. Thank you Crystal for allowing me to post your beautiful photography here, and for allowing me to be a part of your creativity! You can see more photos of this shoot and others on Crystal’s website www.crystalsmithonline.net.
And friends, even though this is the last post of the series, rest assured there is another photo shoot happening this Easter long weekend. So while this is the end of the series, it is not the end of the photo shoots, and it is not the end of seeing the beautiful photos here on Squirrelly Minds.
Before I leave you lovelies for the day I must ask one last question:
Which characters are your favourite?
and no I don’t expect you to answer Katarina Ballerina 😉
