...this is a series of photographs taken between 1988 and 1996.....

I met the troupe performing on the Ramblas in Barcelona - colored dreads, mohawks and the untouchable beauty of youth they set the mood with fiddle tunes, fire juggling acrobatics and theatrics. We traveled from town to town in northern Spain and the south of France - making enough for food, drinks and diesel to move on....

The group grew and evolved. People came and went and other troupes joined together - on my last trip they had tents, trapeze and flaming motorcycle stunts.
