Photographer's Note

If you want some good old fashioned entertainment and nostalgia, head own down to Coney Islands Sideshows by the Seashore. This is the last place in the USA where you can experience the thrill of a traditional ten-in-one circus sideshow. Its inexpensive and makes for the perfect tourist attraction with some fun memories.

The sideshow is a big drawunlike those of the past, which displayed the congenitally different, today's players are a voluntarily freakish and uniquely talented band: pierced and tattooed fire eaters, chain juggling human blockheads, shapely snake charming contortionists, a lady swallowing swords and coat hangers, a man that can twist his arm around more than 360 degrees, and the list goes on.

Ive included a Workshop photo thats a closer look of what people are watching here. I worked my way through the small crowd to see a promoter really doing his best to showcase the performers and entice people to come in and enjoy the shows. .
