Traveling Entertainers

A Creative Pool project by Guus Wensveen (Netherlands)

Before television people were entertained in theaters and dance halls. Think of fire eaters, magicians, circus acts, clowns. All these people would travel across the land to entertain people. Rolph Gobits, whom I represent, photographed these artists in the late sixties, beginning seventies as part of an art school project. Later on he became a well known international photographer. In total there are aprox. 120 photographs. None of these pictures were ever published.
