These came from a collection of over 400 Polaroid photos of strippers trying out for dancing jobs at a So. Cal club. They were taken from the late 1960’s thru the early 1970’s. They document fashion, interior decor, and a time when bodies were for the most part, natural. The main interest I have with these photos is the esthetics of an era, not just as titillation. As an artist and photographer I find these women beautiful, daring and sometimes desperate. Each woman here has a story, and each one deserves our respect.
