Forain, Kaffers en Boerin

For three years Siska Vandecasteele followed Johnny . A carnival employee, all his life. Johnny gives the photographer an insight in the otherwise closed world of the carnival life. He opens the doors of his house and caravan for her. He alternately puts her on the wrong foot, and makes her think. This book is about Johnny, a typical atypical carnival man (Forain). With pictures and words Siska Vandecasteele takes you into a world that is disappearing. A world, that seems very different but is not that different from the visitors world, the “Kaffers and Boerinnen”. Although, in the end, this is just a story of a man who loves his mother dearly and worries about his children.
