Two of my favorite pictures of one of my favorite people, Jackie LeClaire.
I believe that these both date from the early 60s when Jackie was doing advance work for the Ringling show.
Imagine... Kennedy may have been in the White House, The Beatles may have been on Sullivan, Lenny Bruce may have been off somewhere saying a dirty word... but you'd never know it from these timeless images of a classic circus clown.
These could have been taken in 1927 or yesterday morning.
A clown is a clown.
