This photobook explores the strip tease from an almost anthropological point of view: Horvat’s camera captures performances and backstage moments at Paris institutions such as the Folies-Bergère, the Crazy Horse and the Moulin-Rouge as well as capturing shop windows, audience members, and other environmental touches. Lindermohr’s text includes a conversation with Alain Bernadin, founder of the Crazy Horse in Paris. While artistic and observational, this photobook still manages to also be erotic, capturing the atmosphere and sensuality of strip tease and nightlife.
