The idea of this series started from a small investment in autumn 2010, when I bought my Canon Prima AS-1 from a flea market in Hungary.
That time I used to shot almost exclusively on film, so I loaded my new camera with a roll and next day we checked out the spa feeling together. The set up was perfect, you know, when you see a middle aged guy with a small plastic toy camera accompanied by a beautiful girl (my wife), no one was disturbed or suspicious about my activity.
The thermal bath in the history, even before Christ represented a different world for society. During the time it was an information point, a business club or a rudimentary social media and community place.
You have to expose yourself in a place with a lot of taboos. After church this is the place most filled with hopes, you can see a serious mass of people, who are dreaming to leave the building healed without pain, scars or other affections. (Photos and Text: Laszlo-Tibor Olah)
This series is trying to overturn discreetly and emotionally the percept what we have about the funny universe of the nomad circuses. This is the absurd place where the Lion King lives in one messy rusty cage, the strongest man of the world sleeps in the smallest bed of one oldtimer motorhome, the queen of the show hang clothes between the cords of the circus tent.
"The clown laughs - the world laughs, the clown cries - the world laughs, The clown dies - the world laughs " says a cliché, breaking into a few words the whole life of these characters from this colorful crazy community.” (Photos and text: László-Tibor Olah)
