From 1972 to 1975, Susan Meiselas spent her summers photographing women who performed striptease for small-town carnivals in New England, Pennsylvania and South Carolina. As she followed the shows from town to town, she captured the dancers on stage and off, their public performances as well as their private lives, creating a portrait both documentary and empathetic. Meiselas also taped candid interviews with the dancers, their boyfriends, the show managers and paying customers, which form a crucial part of the book.
Produced during the early years of the women’s movement, Carnival Strippers reflects the struggle for identity and self-esteem that characterized a complex era of change. Carnival Strippers Revisited and Making Of come together in a slipcase. Making Of includes color images from Carnival Strippers that have never been printed and/or published before, along with ephemera material collected by Meiselas at the time she developed the project.English - 304 Pages - 27.5 x 23.5 cm - 2.5 Kg
