Tufts University Photography

Circus Acts

Back when I was considering Tufts as a potential school, the tour guides and admission folks were keen on selling us prospective students on P.T. Barnum’s involvement with the establishment of the University back in the mid-19th century. But, it wasn’t until last month, however, that I got to pick up a circus-related Tufts photo assignment. You’d think with a name like the Jumbos, there’d be jugglers and trapeze artists around every corner, right? Well, not quite.

But if you had stumbled into my makeshift studio in the Crane room in early December, you might have thought different. Take a look at this particular group of graduate students, whom I photographed for a Tufts E-News piece showcasing their talents. Their general philosophies, borrowing from their various skills, incorporate traditional circus performance and concepts into their particular field of study.

Pretty cool stuff, and as you can see from the photos, they’d do P.T. Barnum proud.

Much thanks to Jen Agans, Tracy McAskill, Suzanne Rappaport, Jeremy Warren and Christina Zagarino for doing all the hard work!
