Anamitra Chakladar
New Delhi, India

Anna , a Ukrainan gymnasts is getting ready to perform on the high wires. She does this act three times a day. Just as in other parts of the world The Indian Circus is about small ambulant circuses that have all but disappeared in the western world. This photo is from a  series looks into a small circus and it characters. Today Indian circus is a far cry from the glory days, strict animal control laws, high real estate costs and televsion soaps have drawn people away from Indian circus.
