The picture probably shows a scene from a circus. The print itself is glued on a cardboard, decorated by the artist himself. Miroslav Tichý was a Czech photographer who documented thousands of women in his hometown Kyjov with self-made cameras made of cardboard and tin cans. The focus of his aesthetics lies on imperfection, thus distorting, spotting, poorly exposed his pictures, and not only through the given possibility of his primitive equipment.
