Stephanie Diani is a Los Angeles-based photographer who has produced this wonderful project
It features portraits of women who performed burlesque for many years, often decades, of their lives.
It’s refreshing to see work that explores ageing, sexuality, and dance in this way.
And to see the juxtaposition of the aged body against the ‘sexy’ dress of burlesque. By presenting two features we would not expect to see together, the project challenges our expectations of ageing as well as our expectations of burlesque.
