Vis vivaThis project has two strands. For several months I was following a number of circus artists: jugglers and acrobats, attending workshops and conducting private interviews. Through these meetings I produced a range of documentary photographs and with the writer Nita Hyrkkänen compiled a photo-book which unveils the lives of circus performers in Edinburgh. Working closely with a couple of performers I observed the relationship between them and captured its essence through the medium of photography and body language. The outcome of this collaboration is a series of photographs celebrating the joy of life, motion and mutual trust. Vis viva (Lat. living force) is the first known description of kinetic energy - the energy the object possesses due to its motion.
