Still here? Then don’t say you weren’t warned when you see the grotesque circus bacchanalia of Paradise the Club by Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf. This 2001 photoshoot features explosive, highly-saturated photos of a circus turned sinister bondage club full of lurid freaks and malevolently mischievous clowns. Not enough to fuel a coulrophopic’s waking nightmare? He thoughtfully provided an accompanying series of disturbing clown portraiture, Paradise Portraits, close-up photos of clowns in various stages of terrifying, from decay to intensely grinning maniacal joy. Visit Erwin Olaf’s portfolio for the complete collection, and see you in your dreams, darlings.
