Exposing Images of Strip Clubs Taken in the Harsh Light of Day

1Most professional photographers depend on a dark room to properly create beautiful images, but Christopher Sturman turned up the lights for his latest photo series, NYC Strip, where he photographed New York City strip clubs in the harsh light of day.

Most of our immediate mental images of strip clubs involve dim lighting, an occasional neon strobe light, a crowd of noisy patrons hoping to score a one-on-one from a willing woman of the pole, but when the lights are on these empty rooms, which could on any night seem alluring and mystical, just seem gross and desperate.

The following images show strip clubs in a completely different light, literally.
