DescriptionThe circus came to Southland Shopping Centre, Cheltenham. Every day for three weeks I went past this on the train. I have wanted to capture a circus big top for years. This image has been in my mind for a long time.Finally, on a dark and stormy Saturday afternoon, I went out, braved the biting cold and took a few shots of it.The strange looks I received from people driving through the car park were the highlight of this day!
Andrew Paranavitana, Melbourne Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement My work often takes two avenues of theme: a darker, sometimes scary world of unseen nightmares, and a nostalgic playground of warm memories, much safer and happier than the former.
I have always looked further than traditional methods of photography. Digital manipulation has allowed me to communicate and share my view of the world. I have a need to lace my work with elements of obscure visions and deliver a piece the viewer can connect with on multiple levels.
There is one general thing to remember with photographic art: Look Up. You miss so much at eye level only.
