Julie Atlas Muz (2007) taken by Ed Barnas

"I had seen photos of this particular number by Julie Atlas Muz in Michelle Baldwin’s book, but had not seen her perform it until the 2007 Exotic World Weekend. As Julie struggles to unwind herself from the rope, Lesley Gore sings her 1963 hit You Don’t Own Me. The combination of the visual imagery with the song’s lyrics make for a powerful statement and I hear the music whenever I see this image.”
