Backstage Photos: MY CIRCUS FAMILY

Client: Thuishaven
Photography: Darren Smith in collaboration with Marcus Koppen (Smith & Koppen)



This is the Summer of 2017 backstage at Thuishaven, a performance / music venue built from shipping containers and enclosed by old harbour walls. In Dutch, Thuis is ‘home’ and haven is ‘harbour’ and that to everyone a part of the community, it has become their second home.

Darren spent a summer backstage, in collaboration with Marcus Koppen (Smith & Koppen), building an outdoor studio to capture the artists, DJs, and party-makers backstage.

The subjects are set to simple backgrounds to emphasise each of their individual characteristics and strengths
