His portrait series is bizarre yet elegant and thoughtful. Though you might expect each piece to be loudly odd, like some sort of old-fashioned freak show, somehow Schramm creates a […]

Pink Paper Circus’s illustration work is full of wonderful raw accidents and textures. I really enjoy the mixture of patterns with observational drawings. It reminds me of how fun sitting down with a paper and a box of new pencils can be.

Tightrope walkers. Sad clowns. Strongwomen with bulging biceps. Acrobats. And yes, even a diving horse. These may be black and white photographs, but there’s no denying that circuses in the early 20th century were a colorful affair.

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Friday 9 August 2013

In 2003, Nicolai Howalt took 78 double portraits of teenage boys before and after their first boxing match.
