Over a period of 2 years, Elsa Quarsell has travelled around the world photographing burlesque performers in their homes. This collection of photos captures the humorous and beautiful world of burlesque.
The book contains over 100 portraits of performers as well as an intimate glimpse into their homes, complete with trinkets and memorabilia.
Each portrait is accompanied by an interview with the performer, making ‘The Domestic Burlesque’ an important insight into the creative motivation and emotion behind the burlesque scene of the early 21st century.
