What is the It's All That Glitters: Burlesque Extravaganza?

My name is Brian C. Janes, a photographer based in Los Angeles, California. My first book, It's All That Glitters: Portraits of Burlesque Performers in Their Homes, has just been released by Schiffer Publishing and I want to celebrate with a fantastic launch event. This extravaganza will be a one-night-only event in Los Angeles featuring 3 significant parts:

  • Gallery Show featuring large format prints of photos from the book.
  • Burlesque Show featuring performers in the book from across the United States.
  • Group Book Signing with as many performers in the book that can make it to the show.

The funds raised by this project will help cover the costs of the production, including making the prints for the gallery show; printing posters, postcards & flyers to market the show; helping performers from the book who live in other parts of the country travel to Los Angeles to perform in the show; renting a venue and paying the tech crew (lighting, sound, etc.).

At the moment, the time frame for the show is late July 2012. More specific details will be released as they become available.

Thanks for your support, and I look forward to celebrating with you!

Janes’ (aka. BCJ), It’s All That Glitters: Portraits of Burlesque Performers in Their Homes. For the book, BCJ traveled over 14,000 miles across the US to photograph burlesque performers in their homes and ask them one question: “What does burlesque mean to you?” The event, It’s All That Glitters: Burlesque Extravaganza, will feature a gallery show displaying photos from the book, a burlesque show featuring performers from the book, and a group book signing with the author and performers.
