TOTEM in Santa Monica

The Raising of the Big Top

Jan 09, 2013Santa Monica Pier1:00pm

Yesterday afternoon, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the raising of the Big Top, for TOTEM – Cirque du Soleil! In the 15+ or so years I’ve been working on Cirque du Soleil projects (starting off assisting withVeronique Vial in 1997)…this was the VERY FIRST time I’ve ever seen them raise the tents.
It was a great experience for me, and I’m glad I was able to capture a few of the moments.
Below are some of my favorites from the event.
