A passion project born to MALGORZATA (Maggie) SANIEWSKA, PlayMe Burlesque showcases today's modern day American "New Burlesque" sex symbols in a style reminiscent of Alberto Vargas' Pin-Up Girls of the 1940's. 

 

Saniewska was inspired by the art form as it moved from back alley, underground cabarets into mainstream film and entertainment, and wanted to capture the beauty of it in her photography projects. She looked for a way to portray the performers in a way that would highlight each of their unique styles and individual interpretations of humor, sexuality, theatricality and grace.The PlayMe Burlesque cards give her the ability to feature many of the most talented burlesque performers in a photographic exhibit - all at one time.
