Needles+Sins Party & Art Show January 15th
Mark your calendars New Yawkers and Tri-State sexy people: Next Friday, January 15th from 7-10 PM we'll be hosting another fabulous exhibit at Tattoo Culture, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. GIRLS is a solo show of fine art photography by Maria Guido featuring selected images from over a decade of shooting burlesque.
What I love about Maria's work is that she brings her feminine eye and street photography style into portraits that are typically highly stylized and often shot from a male perspective. The result is an intimate look into the stage lives of the burlesque performers, celebrating them as strong and beautiful. And while dedicated to feminist ideals, Maria is not afraid to present the sensuality and sexuality of the performers.
Selected 11x14 framed black white gelatin silver prints of this series are available for purchase at Tattoo Culture from January 15th until February 15th, 2010.
