Clown Dark

Clown Dark - beth radish. Photographed by emma bailey


I pho­tographed a per­for­mance of Beth Radish, on stills and video. In the dark of my Stu­dio. At moments I would take a photo and the light would flash, leav­ing an image burnt into my eyes.

Beth’s per­form­ing per­sona is a clown and this piece toys with the ideas of par­tic­i­pa­tion, expec­ta­tion and experience.

Later, she per­formed for an audi­ence with impres­sive results.
