BEAUTIES OF TODAY
A series of forty eight portraits on 'neo' or ‘new’ burlesque photographed over four years at the Bethnal Green Working Mens Club in Bethnal Green, London. Neo burlesque has been described as a form of entertainment that is an exaggerated imitation or parody of striptease. It reflected the resurgence of this performance-based art that originated in the nineteenth century that had found a new twenty-first century audience of both men and women. It is also a study of photographic portraiture and the erotic pose.
