Sam is currently sharing an old, unseen project titled ‘New York State Circus’.
“I go on holiday every year to see family who live Clonmany, a little village in Donegal. I’d always try and shoot some work while over there. One day, in 2005, I was driving around and saw a circus setting up in a field in Carndonagh, a small town a few miles away. We parked up and walked over and got talking to the performers and other circus folks. I asked if I could take some photos. So the next day I went back with a colorama and taped it up against a circus lorry, and photographed some of the artists.”
