"To play around with sexual motifs is to be in the avant garde." - Vivienne Westwood
Demoiselles is a series of photographs showing a hyper sexuality as mere marketing tactic by shop keepers to attract customers. Much like the sex workers of the red light districts of Amsterdam and London, the mannequins depict a fantasy emulating from a mere window to entice, titillate, and eventually buy. Almost ghost like in their gaze, they recall an era of the dime a dance girl and lthe girls whom I knew worked in brothels, strip clubs, and the adult entretainment industry.
