Richard Heeps became well-known for his Burlesque Photography after he spent 2003 capturing performances in Britain & America. He spent a lot on time with his subjects on a number of occasions, building close relationships with them resulting in more intimate artworks. He began this prior to the cultural phenomenon of Burlesque, on the brink of the new movement which was a form of interpretation and innovation. His connection to it was sparked from his Rockabilly links built over the seven years he spent working towards his book, 'Man's Ruin' which was published in 2007.
