boudoir photography…Tigz rice

Boudoir photographs has had a strong influence from the burlesque movement with glamour and sexuality being the driving force between boudoir photography, with people trying to recreate the sexuality, empowerment and flirtations that burlesque delivers.

One photographer who is awesome at doing this is tigz rice a photographer from london. Her photographs of women scream of romance, sexuality and confidence and she portrays these women in such an empowering light the viewer is pulled into this genre and feels encouraged to try it herself.

on her website she writes “Tigz’s strong eye for beauty, attention to detail and years of experience behind the camera will help you to accentuate all of your greatest assets whilst boosting your inner confidence, making sure you leave feeling confident, empowered and inspired.”

I think this is the goal for burlesque photography for women to feel empowered by their own bodies and to reclaim their sexuality.
