Sunday Poster Gallery: Indian Circuses

The most we know about circus in India is the famous photographic work of Mary Ellen Mark, that in the 90s was the subject of her beautiful book “Indian Circus”.
Some dozens of circuses travels in India today, with generic names as “Imperial, European, Continental, Royal, etc”. They are a combinatioin of mud and approximate clown make up, hippopotamuses and children performers, fourth-hand tents and dwarves motorcycle acrobats.



Today’s gallery is about their advertising.
