STRIP | TEASE is a beautiful hardbound coffee table book showcasing Tigz Rice’s work within the burlesque community over the past decade. From those early days at Proud Cabaret – when Tigz was finding her feet as a photographer – to her most recent burlesque-apades with notable performers throughout the international burlesque community.
Representing 68 incredible performers from all over the world, STRIP | TEASE includes Miss Exotic World titleholders Frankie Fictitious, INGA, Poison Ivory, Miss Indigo Blue, Immodesty Blaize, and Michelle L’amour; alongside current Mr. Exotic World titleholder Joshua Dean and burlesque legends Marinka, Judith Stein, and Dusty Summers. It also includes a wonderful foreword by none other than international burlesque sensation Dirty Martini!
Within the book’s 144 pages, you’ll find over 50 never-seen-before images that have been shot exclusively for this book, alongside a selection of beautiful images from the archives that represent the highlights of Tigz Rice’s career so far. Giving a voice to the burlesque community, it also includes anecdotes from the performers themselves, telling us what brought them to the stage and why burlesque means so much to them as an art form.
Hardcover, 144 pages, 9” x 11.5”
