The magazine of the photo-essay
December 2019 issue
Behind the Scenes
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine. Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
Transvestites, girls bathing in tubs of beer, drunk actors and even more drunk visitors. All of this at a club, the club where I’m working. Over a year ago now, I came to Asia to work as a dancer. For the last few months we have performed at a Chinese club, which is more like a huge bar with a stage. And that’s how the series “Behind the scenes” appeared. This is the reverse, the invisible side of the club, the atmosphere, a part of which I became. Behind the scenes, there is more burlesque than on the stage. The concentration of sexual fluids is more powerful than oxygen. There’s no falsehood – it’s not a scene, it’s my everyday life.
