Freak Show

San Antonio, Texas


“Freak is a relative term. By definition it denotes something or someone that is unusual or markedly different. I guess I’m a freak in a way, as we all are. Documenting the tour of the Dallas-based freak show Hellzapoppin, I’ve seen an openness to being oneself, free from the restraints of societal normal. It’s healthy, like a vitamin; we should all have our daily dose.” See more of Brandon Thibodeaux’s work at
