The Photographs of Frederick W. Glasier
Peter Kayafas and Deborah Walk
The circus is in town! This exciting new volume showcases the thrilling circus photography of the American photographer Frederick W. Glasier, who photographed the circus during its 1890-1925 heyday. Now considered as masterful a chronicler of time and place as his contemporaries Atget and Sander, Glasier made photos which bring the three-ring pageant of the circus to life with an irresistible narrative rhythm. With 73 gloriously reproduced images from the 1,700 glass plate negatives from the collections of the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art at Florida State University, informative anecdotal captions by the circus historian (and co-editor of this volume) Deborah Walk, and a fascinating essay by Luc Sante.
