About the Author
Angus Stewart is a London-based photographer, whose focus is on social documentary photography and portraiture. He has worked closely with the circus, burlesque and cabaret communities in London, getting to know the performers, photographing and interviewing them. His aim has been to depict not just the performance on stage, but also the life behind the scenes, and the highs and lows of the artists. Recent work has included photographing grass roots activists in London and Salvador in conjunction with the UCL and UFBA, 'Rights to The City' project, and he is currently engaged with the Global Disability Innovation Hub (GDIHub), a global charity that aids the development of participatory projects in informal settlements. He is also working on a personal project, 'With Love Jeannette' - a collection of found documents, photographs, and new images related to events from the early-20th century - which addresses the fragmentary nature of history and knowledge and the continuity of human experience.
"...captures the energy and camaraderie of the city's burlesque club scene."
