Scottish photographer Mark Mann captured some of NYC’s most alluring burlesque dancers for his tassels series, and ArtStar, the online contemporary art store, is launching a series of 4 new prints in celebration. From ArtStar:
Mark documented the burlesque dancers of New York City with his 1940s Graflex Super D camera, producing powerfuly sensual images that evoke the storied art and history of burlesque. Mark’s portraits have been included in several coffee table books and have been exhibited at the New Museum. Recently, he has taken his Graflex Project to Union Square and Gawker and next will be traveling to Mexico City where he will documents the characters of lucha libre .
The launch event takes place at SPiN Toronto on September 9 during the Toronto International Film Festival.
