About

'Sightlines - Public and Private (Lives)' will showcase Julie Cook's work over 20 years as an 'embedded' photographer working in the exotic dancing industry in London and Las Vegas.

In particular the exhibition will focus on Cook's work at 'Olympia Moments' Ltd, a London exotic dancing club owned run and operated by the dancers themselves. As interested in the audience and their reactions to the spectacle unfolding before them, as she is in the performers.

This is a documentary project (the images could easily appear in a Sunday colour supplement) yet Cook's Long-term engagement with spectacle, sexuality and the body as a site for performance raises her photography to the level of art.
