Burlesque, Bobbé-style

dottie-lux.jpgDottie Lux here is just one of several New York-based performers that Leland Bobbé has photographed and interviewed for his neo-burlesque book project. There is something refreshing about seeing real women, and men, of all shapes and sizes getting their kit off and their feathers on and getting sexy on stage - despite what Mayor Giuliani thought when he 'cleaned up' NYC and much of the scene was lost. Well, it's back, and Leland brings it to us in all its glory; he has already won a gold award in the Graphis Photography Annual Competition for 2010 with this body of work and the book is yet to come. Witness the fabulous and the disturbing (hello, Tigger!)
