2013: A Year In Photos.

~ Written by / compiled by Paul O’Connell (POC Photo)

Two years ago I posted an article here titled “2011: A Year In Photos”. I had intended to do the same thing for 2012 but totally dropped the ball. Most likely I got distracted by this:

The cast of Land of The Sweets from 2012

The cast of Land of The Sweets from 2012

I vowed this year I would not lame out or get distracted, and that I would meticulously go through all my burlesque photos from the previous twelve months and pick the best of the best, which is not an easy task, let me tell you. This year there were so many burlesque shows in the Seattle area, probably more than any other year thus far.  To accomplish this huge undertaking, I thought why not ask some awesome photographers in the Seattle area for their favorite burlesque photos of 2013: Jessica Drake, Mandy McGee, Rick Priest, Scott Foster, John Cornicello, Greg Holloway, Jackie Kingsbury, Magpie and myself, POC Photo, now proudly present our favorite burlesque photos from the year that was 2013, in no particular order. Enjoy!
