According to photographer Dusti Cunningham’s website, he is “a Los Angeles based portrait photographer who grew up in a very clean single-wide trailer home in rural Kansas. We didn’t own a television so we watched tornadoes. None of my dogs were ever named Toto. My dream as a kid was to be an artist and live in California. Dolly Parton and my mom were my heroes, they both wore wigs. To me glamour was a mix of the ’30s and ’40s Hollywood stars I saw in books and the ’80s icons featured in the National Enquirer.”
Most people find clowns either funny or terrifying, but in his latest series, Cunningham makes them arousing. Care to join the circus?
