"World Travelers" from Circus Crew series

“There was a time when circus entertainers would have been the best personification of world travelers – exotic and adventurous. The heyday of circus may be past but they still exist, and in Paola’s work she documents a small group of such modern nomads who travel with a modestly sized show. This resulting image is quite wonderful – she captures the devotion, the humble lifestyle, and the dreams of stardom – our subject wistfully gazing upwards off-frame, embodying an icon of the fabled, all-pervading American dream.” – Life Framer
