The Clown UnMasked Series – A Comprehensive List 2010 – 2016

The Clown UnMasked

In 2010 I had a concept in my head one day that I should photograph my favorite subjects (Clowns) without their performance costume and makeup and match it with a performance shot. The ‘Unmask’ shot would be black and white and the performance shot in color.  I decided to call it The Clown UnMask. I began shooting in Feb. 2010 with one of the funniest clowns I know and admire. Glen Heroy.

I followed up with many more (almost 50) until I stopped shooting the series in 2016. Here is a comprehensive list of the performers (with links to the original posts) I documented in my ‘hallway’ studio. In the order in which I photographed them. Full post are reached by using the links. Some portrait are provided for visual excitement!

(The wall came down in 2016 so the series was discontinued)

Naked Brazilian – Gustavo Pace @Fringe Festival

Gustavo Pace

I have been photographing Gustavo for quite a few  years now. I shot one of his first performances in NYC in 2011.

He has been dedicated and very busy. Here is a glimpse of his bio:

He attended a full two years course at AMDA – American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York. Graduated in acting with a Master of Fine Arts from The American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) at Harvard University.

Gustavo Pace was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship for Theater/Acting. He obtained the Extraordinary VISA for Arts, based on shows and theater activities performed in the United States and Brazil.

He is now performing his new ‘original’ play “Naked Brazilian“.  Written, and performed by him. Directed by Stephen Brown-Fried.

We went walking around NYC yesterday and I did some shots to capture the mood of this play. Here is the description:

“Struggling against his father’s wishes to become a lawyer, a young man journeys from Rio to NYC  to make a case for his own destiny.”
