World of WondersBook - 2009
Working in brilliant colour and with a large-format camera, photographers Jimmy and Dena Katz have spent three years following the last authentic travelling side show in America to create an elegy to this unique art form. Their powerful, poignant and respectful portraits of aging performers and young recruits reveal disappointment, despair and tenacity played out against the tawdry glitter of the fairground. The legendary Ward Hall and Chris Crist, leaders of the World of Wonders and their troupe of performers are documented in their unique glory.
