London’s Street Performers

Athol Rheeder

‘London in the 21st century is a Mecca for street performers. Inspired by the likes of Cartier-Bresson and Erwitt, Rheeder sets out to capture the creative work of the entertainer and the audience they entice. The images are appealing, full of character, talent and excitement. Clowns and mime artists, musicians and jugglers captured mid-act, wooing their onlookers by their natural talent and enthusiasm.
