Roaring 20’s

San Francisco, CA 2011

After showing my work at a photo night a couple of weeks ago, someone suggested that I photograph the customers at the club more to put everything into context. I’ve hesitated to shoot them for a multitude of reasons. My goal has always been to show that these are real women and not ‘just strippers’. I was afraid that if I photographed them with the customers, then the viewer wouldn’t be able to see past their preconceived notions. Slowly I am realizing that the series wouldn’t be complete without a handful of images to show what their job entails. I’m finding it challenging (and exciting) to photograph them in a way that hasn’t been done before so that the viewer can still relate to the subject matter. Here is to trial-and-error.

Hubba Hubba Revue featuring my friend, Kara Nova, at Uptown

Oakland, CA 2010

My very talented friend, Kara, performed at a burlesque show in Oakland about two weeks ago and I haven’t had the chance to post these images yet since I’ve been crazy busy. So many events going on in the Bay Area – World Series, Halloween, Election, Day of the Dead, Giants Parade, etc… So I’m finally back tracking and posting a few photos from Kara’s performance.
