These are pictures of a circus. A special kind of human circus. It takes place near my home in Berkeley. I have a deep fascination with the participants, their fatidic pronouncements, and the events which they bring about, particularly the events of confrontations.
I let the images speak for themselves about my concern for all the communicants in this late twentieth century circus.
