Amy Touchette’s wonderful photo essay on The World Famous *BOB* was featured in a slidshow last week on March 31, 2015, at the Leica Gallery in Warsaw:
ul. Mysia 3, 3rd Floor
The World Famous *BOB* is a female burlesque dancer based in Brooklyn who is a central part of the neo burlesque movement that began in New York City in the 1990s. Raised on an isolated 115-acre farm in the California Valley, she renamed herself “Bob” after Robert Smith of The Cure when she was a teenager and was later crowned “The World Famous *BOB*”—now her legal name—by her drag mother, Jackie Beat, when she performed in her first Wigstock.
