Baby Oil and Ice

This was a collaborative book with Lara Clifton who edited the writing and photographer Julie Cook. I was invited to photograph the women who worked in some of the strip pubs in the Shoreditch area in 1999, it was an invitation into another world. In the very intimate area of the toilets and changing rooms there were stories about their lives, laughter, banter, boredom, drinking, glamour and camaraderie. I was there when the outfits were chosen for each strip…and there when they returned naked holding their discarded clothes and still wearing their heels.
