The ZipZap circus is a circus school for children in Cape Town, South Africa. Two former trapeze artists, one French and one South African realised
their dream when they started the ZipZap Circus. It is a free circus school for children of diverse backgrounds to learn trapeze, juggling, unicycling, rigging, prop building, dramatic and other performing arts skills. The children learn trust ,honesty, gain self-confidence, teamwork, discipline,
laughter, togetherness and have fun. I started documenting the circus in black and white
photodocumentary style but have moved to digital, colour and use of shadows .
My work is still in progress using the different styles to capture the circus children, in training,
backstage and on stage. The work the circus does inspires me to continue documenting
