Brenda Circus Work - Peter Lavery Haeni and Robert Fossett Fossett Brothers Circus 1973 at The Harley Gallery Nottinghamshire

Circus Work - Peter Lavery

  • 3 February — 15 April 2018

Peter Lavery is best known for his seductive advertising photography, but for the last 50 years he has been photographing circus performers around Britain. All shot on a plate camera, the work is an impressive collection of circus subjects. These intimately detailed photographs expose moments of ordinariness in extraordinary lives.

Lavery has had an enduring interest and passion for the subject since dropping in on a small indoor circus in his home town of Wakefield in 1968.

This exhibition celebrates both 250 years of circus and Peter Lavery’s five decade long fascination with it.
