The Domestic Burlesque by Elsa Quarsell
Have you ever wondered about burlesque performers away from the stage, and behind closed doors?
In her book, 'The Domestic Burlesque', Swedish photographer, Elsa Quarsell, has captured over 100 burlesque performers in the privacy of their own homes. Artistes pose in one of their special outfits, sharing personal time, and stories. Each photograph is accompanied by a short biography, or a favoured quote.
Elsa is best known for her portrait work and has spent many years exploring various 'groups' of people.
She has travelled the world to meet performers from Australia, USA, England and beyond. The reader is able to glance inside their homes, which exhibit a panoply of retro and vintage ornaments and interesting furniture.
'The Domestic Burlesque' is a book filled with bold colours, nostalgia, curious and enchanting memorabilia and artefacts, and gorgeous burlesque performers.
Elsa has captured the essence of each artiste to produce this beautiful hardback edition. This is a must-have for all lovers of burlesque and those nostalgic about all things retro and vintage.
