nine on seven presents CIRCUS photographs by Leila Morrissey
Circus is Melbourne photographer Leila Morrissey’s first solo exhibition. Swirling hula hoops from head to toe, balancing on a chair, slicing a teddy, hula-hooping with a straightjacket on, balancing on another performer… you name it, the performers captured in these images can do it. The exhibition reflects Leila’s fascination with the world of the circus – the combination of power and grace makes for compelling imagery, and these photos show the performers doing what they love, capturing them in the studio as they work their magic. These amazing artists who have worked all over Australia as well as the world, and their work make for a unique and thrilling series of photographs.

And don't forget Snotrag's work will continue to be on show until next Tuesday.
