Midori Wearing Bettie Page's Gloves, Chicago 1997

Gemini Klein was a company in Chicago that had one of the largest collections of historic fetishwear. Yogi, the owner of the company, invited Midori and I to peruse his collection and have access to it for five days. One of the most exciting opportunities was being able to shoot the original Bettie Page leather opera gloves - the ones you see in a lot of her playful bdsm-oriented photoshoots.

 

For the Bettie Page Tribute Show this Saturday in Hollywood, I have on display several unpublished images from the Bettie Page portion of the shoot.

A tribute to Bettie Page featuring the art of such pin-up legends as

 

OLIVIA & BUNNY YEAGER

 

Also with Austin Young, Jim Silke, Colin Christian, Glen Hanson, Marla Rutherford, Steve Diet Goedde, Ed Mironiuk, Spencer Davis, The Fluff's+ more.

 

This show is going to be HUGE! I'll be there showing previously unreleased images of Midori wearing Bettie's signature leather opera gloves. Besides all the art, some of Bettie's personal items will be there, including her high-heeled leather boots. If interested in going, my advice is to get there EARLY.
