The Indian Circus of Mary Ellen Mark. From her set of photos this one is my favorite, the photo of an animal trainer in the circus with an elephant. The expression of the trainer shows his superiority and control over the elephant.
This image shows just some of the pre shoot manipulations that occur on the set of one of Gregory Crewdson's productions. Along with extensive lighting there is extreme attention paid to the the detail of not only the subject but the surroundings included. Everything in Crewdson's work is there for a reason, it adds more depth to an image and helps portray the moment he wants to capture.
