CARNY: Americana on the Midway

Virginia Lee Hunter


This series of images explores the pop- and sub-cultures of carnival life. Hunter traveled throughout the United States documenting carnivals and their workers. The images were published in the book CARNY: Americana on the Midway (Umbrage Editions). Hunter teamed up with Canadian filmmaker Alison Murray to make CARNY, a documentary inspired by Hunter’s images to be aired on TVO, Channel 4 in the UK and The Sundance Channel in the United States
