Editions by Frederick shoots the Suicide Girls


We were pleasantly surprised and honored to be chosen as the official photographer for the Suicide Girls in Calgary. This famous burlesque troupe has become well know as one of the leading edge new performance groups that take the traditional form of burlesque and adds a distinctly punk (and a slight hint of lesbian flavor) to a traditional style. Burlesque, unlike striptease, is all about dance, performance and style. Sexual overtones are left to the imagination of the audience as the performers are careful to tease, but never show any "naughty bits". And they do so with great skill and professional flair. The Suicide Girls is billed as an alternative pinup style group that brings burlesque into the 21st century. More complete info can be found on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SuicideGirls

In Calgary on April 4th, the Suicide Girls came as part of the Blackheart Burlesque tour to the Marquee Room. We were there to capture the action!
