Circus Legends: Headless Girls

Circus Legends: Headless Girls

Mimi Berlin’s Circus legends came to life! Meet them in the photoseries by Wendelien Daan.

Dutch Photographer Wendelien Daan and Mimi Berlin collaborated on the photo series ‘Headless Girls’. They imagined two women who used to work being a circus act in the 20th century. These “Headless Girls” meet again, after decades, at a park.

Watch the Headless Girls move!

The women are wearing silk scarves designed by Mimi Berlin.

Sakura Jelly

Sakura means cherry blossom in Japanese.

Widely celebrated in Japanese literature, poetry, and art, sakura carry layered meanings. For example, because they bloom briefly, the blossoms are often seen as a metaphor for the ephemeral beauty of living. At the same time, the joyful tradition of hanami (flower viewing) is an old and ongoing tradition. The practice was first associated with plum blossoms before becoming almost exclusively linked with cherry blossoms by the Heian Period (794–1185). With wider exposure to Japanese art and culture in the nineteenth century, audiences in the U.S. and around the world embraced sakura as a particularly Japanese cultural hallmark.(read more http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/cherry-blossoms/cherry-blossoms-in-japanese-cultural-history.html)
