Frederick W. Glasier (1866-1950) was an American photographer, known for his circus images. Glasier made extraordinary photographs of the American circus between 1890 and 1925, during its heyday. I’ve fallen in love with those pictures from the moment I saw them first. There is this feeling of melancholy when you try to imagine this life they lived more than a hundred years ago. The glorious days of the circus, which ended a long time ago.

The book circus is available here.
