San Francisco based freelance photographer Alicia Vera has been documenting the exotic dancers at the Roaring 20′s.
I have been documenting the exotic dancers at the Roaring 20′s in San Francisco for about two years. The project began when I accepted a position in the marketing department for the company that manages eleven strip clubs in the city. I began building relationships with many of the dancers, quickly earning their trust. I’ve spent countless amount of days following the girls backstage, around the club, and was even welcomed into some of the dancers’ homes. Stripped is about the face behind the veil and getting past the stereotypes and misconceptions of being an exotic dancer.
