Bohemian Burlesque: The Photography of Le Turk

Scenes from the city of old: clowns, angels and showgirls… this is the photography of Le Turk from France. Drawing upon themes of the carnival and burlesque style, Le Turk creates surreal scenes with a vintage cinematic flare.

The mysterious Le Turk and his crew create the strange bohemian world of acrobats and other fantastic characters in a circus like atmosphere… but their attention to detail is hardly a circus. Everything is controlled and planned down to the smallest detail, providing us with an exquisitely interesting final shot.

Check out Le Turk and his upcoming shows at Le Turk Photography. His intricate images are definitely worth a look full-scale.
