“It’s All That Glitters”
Portraits of Burlesque Performers in Their Homes
Take an uncommon glimpse into the private worlds of public performers. Explore over 100 photos of contemporary burlesque performers from across the US through colorful, intimate, and revealing portraits.
What is burlesque? Who better to ask than burlesque performers themselves? With this question in mind, the author traveled over 14,000 miles across the United States visiting today’s burlesque performers, photographing them in their homes, and asking them: “What does burlesque mean to you?” Their answers and 104 accompanying portraits may surprise you. For these performers, burlesque is so many things, including fun and empowerment on stage, an escape from life’s doldrums, a fantasy, a career. This book also presents a study in contrasts between the public persona of each performer and that performer’s private life. Visit http://ItsAllThatGlitters.com for videos, photos, links, and more information about the performers featured in the book.
