Nevada Rose: Inside the American Brothel
Observatory (543 Union St., Brooklyn)
Photographer Marc McAndrews spent five years living in and photographing “the landscape, the spaces, the mundane, the untouchables and staff members” of every legal brothel in the state of Nevada. One hundred and eighty nine of these stunning photographs, ranging in content from the prosaic to the sensational, are featured in his new book Nevada Rose: Inside the American Brothel.
Tonight, we invite you to join Mr. McAndrews for an illustrated lecture in which he will show many of these fabulous photographs, and share the stories behind them: what was it like living and working inside the Nevada brothels, how did he get access for the first time and what were his interactions like with the women, owners and customers. Books will also be available for sale and signing.
