BOOK PRESS RELEASE: OLYMPIA MOMENTS LTD
By JULIE COOK and PAUL DAVIES
Olympia Moments Ltd is a book from photographer/writer team Julie Cook and Paul Davies on the subject of a group of erotic dancers who founded their own ‘underground’ club scene in the back rooms of London pubs between 1998-2008. In it we are presented with a secret world all too often misunderstood, and Cook and Davies are anxious to up-end stereotypes and examine the freedoms these women and their invited audiences enjoyed.
This artist’s book extends Cook’s interest in voyeurism and takes on different viewpoints from the empty interiors, portraiture of the women and the body language of the performers and their audience. Writing partner Davies includes some drawings as well as a contextualizing essay. The volume is modest in size (168mm x 128mm) but sumptuous in detail featuring 67 litho colour plates and comes leather bound in a numbered edition of 100.
