Offstage: Michelle L'amour



 

This catalogue reflects the current exhibit Offstage: Michelle L'amour at the Photo Four Gallery, Chicago IL. Photography by Mike White.

The catalogue for the exhibit is available in hardcover and softcover editions through blurb.com (order through link bleow).

Mike White has crafted a personal style self-referred to as the “artblanche” sessions, that go beyond figurative, and dig deeper to capture intimate inner narratives of his subjects.
In these photographs, world-renowned burlesque dancer, Michelle L’amour participated in a series of “artblanche” collaborations envisioned by the artist, where the subject is encouraged to drop their fa├žade and begin short sessions of self-exploration. The artist typically uses black and white, allowing his use of light to become a secondary character in his compositions
