Local performer Ruby Rockafella pays tribute to Blaze Starr, the Godmother of Baltimore Burlesque, with photos by Steve Parke, formerly Prince’s art director.
In a recurring series, The Darkroom takes a look back at some of the talented photojournalists who have helped enrich the pages of The Baltimore Sun. One such photographer was Lloyd Pearson.
The Baltimore Sun newspaper has a rich history of photojournalism. The Sun has employed a long line of award winning photographers. To pay tribute to these photographers, The Darkroom will periodically take a look back at the body of work by some of these photographers whose love of their craft helped document the lives of people from the backstreets of Baltimore to the four corners of the globe.
