Surreal Horse Play

Shows like Cavalia, conceptualized by the same person behind Cirque du Soleil, are not easy to capture in photographs let alone a single image. Much of my take, even if they captured a peak moment of energy and motion, felt too, well staged. By going a bit more wide and including the snow falling over the crowd, I was hoping to make the picture about the surreal experience as much as the actual stage action. Click to see more photos..
