Matthias Clamer for Spiegelworld

What is Spiegelworld? This traveling circus defies precise categorization, but a combination of cabaret, burlesque, and big-top spectacular comes close to covering it.

Since 2005, Spiegelworld have been commissioning Matthias Clamer to photograph promotional imagery for their shows—including this year’s event, Empire, which is being staged on Broadway. Robin Leach—if you’re of a certain age, you remember him from Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous—calls Empire “the most disgusting yet hilarious act in showbiz history.” That’s quite a compliment, when you think about it.

Here are two posters featuring Matthias’ photos, plus some of his favorite images from his Spiegelworld shoots:
