You may have seen some of these stunning and otherworldly photos of showgirls backstage at the Latin Quarter nightclub going around Pinterest. I tracked them back to the blog Honey Kennedy, and when I read that they were from LIFE magazine I immediately thought to check the LIFE archive if there was more to find from the same session.

Here’s the full set, shot by Gordon Parks, most likely sometime in the 50s.
