Private Lives

‘Private Lives’ documents a series of encounters with women from New York’s thriving burlesque scene. A scene which came to form the backdrop of my trip to the city in July 2011.

Dressed as creatures of their own imagination against the canvas of everyday existence, these portraits expose a moment of convergence between the trajectories of each girl’s life. The veneer between public and private is broken to reveal something unexpectedly honest beneath.
