Photo of the Day: Aged Stars of Burlesque

Los Angeles based photographer Marie Baronnet shot ex-burlesque stars at their homes. Dixie Evans, who was called “The Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque” was her first model. After shooting Evans, Baronnet went to a festival of the legends of American burlesque and met the rest of the models for her project.

According to Baronnet, burlesque is different from other forms of striptease because it demands extreme artistic dedication. The women she photographed were artists; they made dance routines, and created costumes. With the project Baronnet wanted to show women the way they look now and how they looked in the past.

The project is presented as a book Legends: The Living Art of Risque that can be bought for €42.
