Ladies of Undress
From a young age I would sit myself in front of the TV, put Cabaret (1972) on and watch in wonder at Liza Minneli's mesmerising portrayal of Sally Bowles. A fascination was embedded in me and these women became my icons. Pictured are Burlesque dancers, my own modern day superheroes; sales assistants, and managers by day who don stockings and feather boas, becoming their alter ego and your wildest fantasy by night. I chose to photograph my subjects in domestic settings, performing mundane tasks or posing in their living rooms, to portray the multi-faceted roles modern women fulfil. These women are just as adept at striptease as they are at picking their children up from school, or managing a shop.
