If you read my bio, you know that I spent 16 years studying flying trapeze. My cirque friends have beautiful bodies with which they do amazing things; they fly, they hang, they twist. They drop, they contort, they balance things. And most of them have calluses in places that most of us don't even know exist! I have profound respect for these people and their extraordinary abilities, and I thank them for giving me special opportunities to photograph them.
