Looking back on his five decades as a newspaper photographer in Louisville, Bill Luster recalls an assignment that took him to a strip club called the Toy Tiger.
The Toy Tiger was threatening to sue a nearby nursing home after some of its residents brought in an exotic dancer for a birthday party. So the nursing home thought a field trip was in order. The result of the assignment was a photo of three women from the nursing home and a much younger, shirtless man.
“This is my most fun assignment ever,” said Luster. “Because, they were just having a good time. Some of the women were a little apprehensive about it, but they enjoyed themselves.”
It’s just one of Luster’s photos currently on display at Gallery 916 in downtown Bowling Green.
