French Mimes

mimesforweb.jpgI decided to assign myself a photography project this summer so I would take some different pictures than my usual obsession with sunflowers, gargoyles and other architectural delights here in France. My subject was Mimes.

At many of the music and street festivals there are fabulously costumed mimes who change their pose as you drop a few coins in their box.  I find them fascinating and fun to photograph. I captured these two mimes in Avignon.

And one special photograph (I’ll upload at some point) I caught the mime putting on his makeup at a cafe while having coffee and a cigarette.

Home soon, and I am really looking forward to some time in the studio, hopefully following through on inspiration from the la Belle France!
