The Domestic Burlesque is a beautifully produced book of fotografer by Swedish photographer Elsa Quarsell, portraying burlesque performers in the full glory of their costumes and, uniquely, posed at home. Quarsell spent over two years traveling to each performer's home (from Germany, the UK, Sweden, France, and Holland to Tokyo and the US) to take revealing and outrageous staged portraits of them within their own personality-filled spaces. The book contains over 100 portraits, each accompanied by an interview with the performer.
