The top photo was shot for an ad for the Harrah's show "Freaks," a sideshow style show on the Strip. The performers and I decided to take as many photos as we could fit into the scheduled photo session. We met for photos at their stage in O'Sheas. I can't begin to tell you how excited I was to get to shoot something like this. It was a big blur of moving lights and and trying to pack in as many photos as we could during our time. I was surprised at how much abuse they put their bodies through on a daily basis.
The Las Vegas Sun described the show as "Perverse, revolting, raunchy, offensive and deserving of many other derogatory adjectives, “Freaks” is what might happen if John Waters and Quentin Tarantino went halfsies on a Vegas showroom."
People attending the show are given a waver with language like "Must be 18 years or older. Partial nudity, adult language, gross-out stunts and simulated clown-on-clown sex."
