Limited Edition of 250: Included in this book, are a selection of 400 once lost images. They document fashion, interior decor, and a time when bodies were, for the most part, natural and clothed. They represent an aesthetics of an era and lack the naked titillation so commonly attached to the bodies of contemporary strippers. The years that have elapsed since these photographs were created and the nostalgic nature of the Polaroid renders these images free from the vileness of modern day sex work stigma and body shame. The text included in this book acts as a juxtaposition of the language that surrounds the bodies and our understanding of the lives of contemporary sex workers, in this case, strippers and exotic dancers. You must peel back these vitriolic words to see the sex workers beyond the word whore.
