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)

The Clown Un_Mask – Julie Ferrier

Julie Ferrier relaxing in a beautiful way.

Performing one of her favorite characters with The Rotten Plantains in NYC.

Feeling the ‘life in art’ Julie continues to move the audience to laughter.

A very talented and entertaining funny woman who was in the hysterical french comedy MicMacs.
