This is the first image for a gallery installation called Care of Lions. The artist’s summary thus far is as follows:

Care of Lions is a series of images and sequences surrounding the lives of traveling circus workers in early twentieth-century America. It addresses the history of queerdom and acceptance thereof in fringe cultures, as well as the definition of “freak” in the context of the freak-and-geek type shows that were popular at the turn of the century. It is about love and fear and family.
