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.
