Years ago one of my colleagues in Paris bought a very large collection (the archives?) of Jacques Exertier, a Parisian photographer who worked in the 1950s and '60s. He created an enormous amount of nudes and risque photographs as well as pin-ups and promotional photographs for strippers and cabaret performers. After trying to find what I liked in his work, I finally gave up and bought nothing. I revisited "the collection" many times and finally found something I liked: different models posed in a series of strip tease photos in front of a television set. Here is a selection.
