saltimbanques: street performers, dancers, acrobats and general entertainers hustlin' for a dime on parisian streets.
Picasso has dedicated several series of his drawings to these lowly creatures because as we all know, Picasso loved the low. Prostitutes, dancers, buskers, drunkards, the great European derelict make continuous appearances in his body of work.
You know, among other things. i'm not here to paint Pablo into a box.
i'm just here to take photographs and expound for 2 minutes.
So here they are. My street performers. My kookedyrascal amigos who tend to find themselves upside down nearly as much as they are right side up.
