Diane Arbus ~ Albino Sword Swallower at a Carnival, ca. 1970

"There's some thrill going to a sideshow - I felt a mix of shame and awe.  I mean, there's a sword box where they don't cut the girl in half, they stick a lot of swords in and none of them really go through her and besides they're not sharp and ... it's fun because the girl is almost looney."
