The true face of a clown

Sergey Poteryaev
Have you ever thought about whether clowns and comic actors are happy and funny people in real life? Is it possible that they are grim, melancholy and tired of acting happy all the time? RBTH took a look behind the scenes at the VIII Annual International Clown Festival in Yekaterinburg and composed portraits of clowns from all over the world, both in their roles and their real lives to see what's behind the mask and to show you the true face of a clown.
