Erwin Olaf Paradise Portraits Old Scary Clown Joker Creepy

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.
