Destiny Meseke, one of Salida Circus’s original members will be featured in a photography exhibition by renowned photographer Tim Booth. The exhibit will begin at the Malthouse Gallery in Lyme, Regis England on May 5.

The project named “Circus” is a series of images setting out to show the beauty, strength and symmetry in the performances of young contemporary circus performers in the United Kingdom.

According to Dodho magazine, Tim Booth began taking photographs with his father’s camera at the age of eight. As a teenager he bought his first SLR and headed off around Europe. Infected by both travel and photography he spent several years shooting freelance features for most of the UK’s weekend magazines and newspapers in Africa, Pakistan and South East Asia.

His most recent work in progress is a collection of photographs of circus performers, focusing on movement, bodies and the incredible physical talents of his subjects. The collection is still growing, collecting new disciplines and ideas all the time and is due for completion early next year.

Booth is now based deep in the Dorset countryside in South West England, working from his purpose-built studio and still finding inspiration in the world around him.
