their annual MayDay appeal.

it was a privilege and a treat to be granted access to photograph John Lawson's circus last week.
The whole troupe work incredibly hard under the big top and behind the scenes to put on a great traditional show
of tightrope, juggling and slapstick..
Between climbing ropes + selling candy floss they were kind enough to give me their time.
ladies + gentlemen, boys + girls please give a big round of applause to john, beth, attila, clumbsy, claire, jason,
aaron, georgia, angel, victoria, lui, vitzo, ivan, vala and all the troupe at john lawson's circus
