Cabaret Circus Juggling Performing Arts Photography

Juggling Archives – New Series – FRANCIS BRUNN

I realized that one of the disciplines I have photographed extensively is juggling and jugglers.

I am starting this new series which I will run (every two weeks) until the wonderful JUGGLE THIS festival happens in June.

Here is a photograph I took of Francis Brunn practicing at Showcase Studios (which use to be on 8th Ave near 56th St.)

This was taken in 1980.

Francis Brunn practicing at Showcase Studios.

Francis would practice there with aerialist Philippe Petit on many days when they were both in town.

I visited them on many occasions and photographed their practicing sessions.
