You know that incredible sense of nostalgia stirred up by old hand-coloured photographs; where nothing’s too sharp or too bright, and everyone looks just a little mysterious? That effect is generally long gone with the crispness and realism of digital photography but Marie Claire Italia managed to recreate it quite successfully with this shoot, aptly titled Le Cirque. And what a shoot. The adorable Sophie Vlaming, with classic waved hair and whimsical, vintage-inspired outfits, stars amidst circus sets, carousels, magicians and clowns.
