The Striking World of Burlesque (PHOTOS)

Adam Groffman

Burlesque is its own unique form of art—one that often leaves a lasting impression. The stage presence of a burlesque performance is often unique and hard-to-mimic. Ask anyone who’s been to a burlesque show and they’ll often laugh and cry trying to retell about the performance, but it’s never as good as the original.

In a new book from indie publishers Book the Film, this uniqueness is perfectly captured in a striking series of photographs. The coffee table book, Burlesque, features page-after-page of the men and women famous for burlesque performances. From the sultry looks to the pouty lips, the photographs really jump off the page. You won’t want to miss your next local burlesque performance after seeing these photographs!
