Johanna-Maria Fritz – Like a Bird
L’Artiere Edizioni 2021
Iran, Afghanistan, Palestine, Indonesia, India, Senegal and Dagestan – countries or regions known for troubled politics and dire living conditions. Places in which circus life offers rare moments of light-heartedness. This series captures the existence of acrobats, clowns and animal tamers – and what they do for their people, and for themselves. In Gaza, a tumbler boy says he feels “like a bird” when he goes out into the manège.
