What is burlesque? Who better to ask than burlesque performers themselves? With this question in mind, I traveled over 14,000 miles across the United States visiting today’s burlesque performers, photographing them in their homes, and asking them: “What does burlesque mean to you?”

Of course, there is the dictionary’s definition of burlesque, but their answers and 104 accompanying portraits may surprise you. For these performers, burlesque is so many things, including fun and empowerment on stage, an escape from life’s doldrums, a fantasy, a career.

"It's All That Glitters" is now available as a hard cover book through Schiffer Books and presents a study in contrasts between the public persona of each performer and that performer’s private life.
