Photo Dedicated to – Oleksandr Zhurov – Sacha – Cirque Du Soleil
Dedicated to: Oleksandr Zhurov – Sacha (Cirque Du Soleil), originally uploaded by Steve Troletti – www.trolettiphoto.com.
Just over 25 years ago Cirque du Soleil became a symbol of Pride in Montreal for all of Quebec and Canada. Today Cirque du Soleil as grown as a major player and an authority in the entertainment industry around the world and from space. It’s also the driving force behind the foundation “ONE DROP” www.onedrop.org.
The accidental death of Oleksandr Zhurov (Sacha) during practice touched me as Cirque du Soleil had it’s roots so close to me. It’s been on my mind for quite a while, how could I capture that feeling in a photograph. I have now done so and I proudly dedicate as a tribute to Oleksandr Zhurov (Sacha) and Cirque du Soleil this infrared picture in the colors of Cirque du Soleil Big Top representing the beauty and fragility of life as a “Thank You” for the dedication and sacrifice that every member of the troop puts in to every performance for our entertainment pleasure.
In fall this tree appeared to wither away as winter fell upon Montreal. Now in an early Spring bloom it has sprung back to life.
“Today, it is all of Cirque that is in mourning, I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of Sacha. My thoughts are with his parents and his family, to whom I offer my deepest sympathy.”
“Sacha was part of the extended Cirque family for the few months he was among us,” he said. “An incident like this reminds us of the courage and determination displayed by our artists each and every day. They are exceptional human beings who share their talents with great generosity.” Guy Laliberté October 17, 2009
