“Sideshow” By Lori Ballard

Lori Ballard is a photographer and artist residing in Florida. Intrigued by the odd and unusual Lori has traveled extensively since the early 1990’s to State Fairs documenting the people and attractions of the mysterious carnival and circus life. She steps outside the box of traditional prints presented in frames by transferring images that are cut into pieces then sewn together to create a 4 feet by 6 feet canvas banner. The final coat of sepia tinted acrylic medium adds a weathered appearance giving it an antique feel that seems to transcend time. The pieces are meant to evoke the traditional banners of circus sideshow acts used to attract visitors.
