I have 35 rolls done now and hope to get another 25 or so before I leave. I have the contact sheets and the work looks good. I won’t begin to edit yet but I have a sense of what the body of work will contain.

I have to think of a name for it. I look at the daily life of family circuses around Lima. It has nothing to do with the performances at night at all but about what the quotidian life of a family circus is like.

It also is not sociological. It is a mere glimpse into a world which is private by day and public at night.

It is not about spectacle but looks behind the magic curtain a bit. Something maybe playing with the word spectacle.

Something will come.
