50 years of circus photography – in pictures

The year 2018 is the 25oth anniversary of the creation of the circus, and Peter Lavery has been photographing behind the scenes across the UK for 50 years. His fascination is with the disparity between the glitz of the shows and the ordinariness backstage. His pictures are the subject of a new exhibition at the Harley Gallery in Welbeck, Nottinghamshire, which is the first to document his decades-long project. It opens on 3 February and runs until 15 April
