Hello, gorgeous! Want to hear some good news? One of my live photographs of the inimitable Dirty Martini has just been published in this gorgeous new book, Neo-Burlesque: Striptease as Transformation.
Releasing in a couple of weeks (October 30th 2022) through Rutger’s University Press, Neo-Burlesque: Striptease as Transformation by Lynn Sally takes us on a guided tour of the burlesque revival movement from an academic viewpoint.
Featuring Dita Von Teese, Perle Noire, MsTickle, Julie Atlas Muz and World Famous *BOB*, there is also a chapter on Dirty Martini (which just so happens to feature some of my live photography!) I’ve literally only just received my copy, so have had no more than a quick flick of the pages as I type, but once I’ve had a chance to give it a read, I’ll be back with more of a review. In the meantime though, here’s a little review from the one and only Dita Von Teese…
“A thorough exploration of the genre, Lynn Sally’s insightful Neo-Burlesque: Striptease as Transformation has earned its place on the shelf of every neo-burlesque academic.”Dita Von Teese
A huge heartfelt congratulations to Lynn Sally and a massive thank you for including my work in her book. It’s always such a privilege to be part of a book project like this and I hope the title is a huge success!
