Gudmund Sand and Haakon Sand: The Arctic Circus
For one and a half year, photographers Haakon Sand and Gudmund Sand followed the everyday life of ‘Sirkus Íslands’.
The Arctic Circus is a collaborative photo essay about a group of people who make a living by bringing joy to others, with a desire to build a cultural understanding of the circus as an art form. The photographers gained access to a tightly knit society of friends trying to modernise and transform the perception or the traditional circus.
The cousins Gudmund and Haakon Sand started Sandbox in 2016. Sandbox is a production company based in Oslo, Norway. Sandbox are working with documentaries and personal projects within film and photography. Since the start many of their documentaries have been screened at various festivals all over the world, as well as winning awards.
