Further archetypes and show gals…

  • Showgirl gets ready for the Folies Bergere show at the Hotel Tropicana-Las Vegas-1969-Afterhours Sleaze and Dignity-3

    Well, talking of archetypal images that seem almost too perfect to be real/that seem to exist in some other imagined world (see Florence Stonebraker and pulp fiction archetypes)…

    This image of a showgirl getting ready for the Folies Bergere show at the Hotel Tropicana, Las Vegas in 1969 is something of a favourite of such things…

    It puts me in mind of almost hyper-real fable like, populuxe-esque simulacras of America in the 1960s… not a million miles away from something that might tumble from Mad Men, Magic City or some of the work of Erwin Olaf.

    DiscoveredĀ I’m not quite sure where but rediscovered via here.
