I had the great pleasure of being allowed to head backstage at a burlesque event at Drehleier theatre in Munich. Burlesque has become very popular in Germany over the past few years, I can see why! However it is more a fun evening for the ladies as opposed to mindless ogling by the men! There is a lot of hard work that goes into the dancing in order to keep the audience on their toes. Props are a vital part of the burlesque show. The ladies who I photographed were extremely friendly and were not shy in allowing me to photograph in their dressing rooms! What was even more exciting for a budding young photographer like myself was to see and meet Kate Middletons sister Katrina Darling who put on a fantastic performance and really made the show.
