Event Description

Slideshow presentation, Q&A, and book signing with author/photographer
Marc McAndrews

Scattered around the state of Nevada in little, unassuming desert towns, prostitution is thriving. Marc McAndrews’s extraordinary work, Nevada Rose, gives readers a peek into this legal, albeit secretive, world of fantasy and theater. The end result of a five-year project, the book takes us on a photographic tour of Nevada’s thirty-three “ranches,” and includes an essay by feminist anthropologist Patty Kelly and an interview with infamous Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof.

While the book includes a diverse array of images of the girls in their working costumes, McAndrews also takes us behind the curtain of sex to see a world of brothel life rarely discussed—the managers and madams, kitchens and cooks, laundry rooms and lounges, timers, personal bedrooms, and pets. This monograph is a fascinating insider’s view that explores the difference between the real and the perceived in American culture and mores.

We invite you to join Marc for a slideshow presentation of his opulent photography, followed by a Q&A and book signing. This should be a fantastic night, and we look forward to seeing you!
