Transfiguration is an exhibition by London-based contemporary circus photographer Ben Hopper.
Transfiguration features renowned international contemporary circus artists and dancers. The series showcases their unique physicality and explores the spirit of the performer.
Like a mask, layers of body paint and powder disguise the identity of the subject, and release something animalistic from within. In the final images a sculpted, abstract, less human figure emerges.
The images will be on display in our foyer for the entire Autumn season.
