Set amongst the graphic serenity of the Atlantis sand dunes in Capetown, this series explores movement and motion through capturing a group of acrobats with a unique back story.
After meeting Dmitry, the concept of the shoot evolved to celebrate humanity through the performances. He was born in the townships of Cape Town, and after returning from travelling the world as a performer, set up a circus school to rehabilitate suffering addicts and homeless people. These men are the subjects of this story.
Colour block styling, the clean graphic location and using sand as a material to exaggerate motion were simply a backdrop to the spirit and energy of these extraordinary performers, and people.
I hope to continue working with the charity.
