From Tanja about this piece:

This photograph features a quiet little corner of the infamous Exotic World Burlesque Museum in Helendale, California. We’d driven out into the desert through bad weather, days after Christmas 2005, only to find the legendary Dixie Evans herself, heading out as we arrived. She was surprised anyone even made it out there with the roads in such bad shape — let alone some baby-faced Canadians — so she agreed to give us a tour before running to the bank with another ex-dancer who lived on the property. A few short weeks after this visit, Exotic World was closed forever and its contents eventually moved to Las Vegas, Nevada.
