Behind The Colored Lights
"an insider's view of the carnival"

Summary at the show:

Behind The Colored Lights shows carnival life through Heinrich's still photography and a video documentary. The photographic essay features rich images of the everyday workings of the carnival and emotive portraits of the "carneys" - the people behind the scenes.

Heinrich's short documentary takes viewers on a journey as the artist visits with her sister, Debbie, at the carnival that she co-owns with her husband, Corky Powers, who is the sixth generation of a carney family. Powers Great American Midways Company runs an amusement park on wheels featuring more than fifty modern rides, games, and food stands employing 300 full- and part-time workers.

The documentary traces how the carnival business has changed from its Depression-era beginnings as a form of inexpensive entertainment to today's traveling equivalent of "Disney on Wheels."

"It is the charismatic quality of the lifestyle that is captured in my images," Heinrich said. "The images show the movement and colors of the mixed lights that adorn the rides, food stands, and games. The portraits allow the viewer that insider look, and behind-the-scene peeks, at this most interesting lifestyle and its people."
