Sand Ciel Circus School is the only circus school is Israel - this fact has intrigued me on it’s own, but also gave me a great ground to investigate the relationship between the Camera and the Photographed - the subject I pursue in my art for many years.
However, after several months of visiting this place and communicating with the people I started to learn something new about this phenomena, and soon enough it changed my perspective on the project completely. It became a chance for me to expose the modern circus as almost not differing from the classic and even ancient circus.
The idea of “escape” was present in every conversation I had with both students and teachers. And after the time spend there I realized, that much like in the old times, the circus artists in one way or another are the people not fitting into the society, outcasted or escaping the daily reality into their own world.
