Description

Giuliano Plorutti is fascinated by travelling performers, by their way of life, their affinity with seasons and their nomadic lifestyle. As a photographer he prefers street performances to those of the established circus families. He likes the idea of a simple circus, made up of a combination of theatre, music and dance; that sequence of skills that has revolutionized the fundamental idea of the circus, replacing exotic wild animals, sequins and spotlights with performers who blend in with their audiences. The fine line that separates the performer from the audience becomes thinner, as does the boundary separating the photographer from the photographed. Plorutti has assimilated this approach and doesn't position himself and his camera arrogantly in front of his subject like an artist who must take home his own idea of the world. Quite the contrary, his presence becomes invisible, he relates with people stripped of the role he has assumed at that moment. The photograph itself seems almost secondary, it is the people who come first. Plorutti expects nothing of them, he makes no demands that could condition the pose, nothing is constructed. His photographs freeze a moment in the normal flow of circus life, owed to the trust that he earns for himself each and every time. This is the only way that the act of taking a photograph loses its invasiveness and becomes testament of a true relationship.
