Josh Sisk's new photo book features Major Lazer, Blaqstarr, Baltimore nightlife

Diplo spinning for Major Lazer, Rye Rye soon after she was discovered, anonymous dancers at The Paradox.

 Those are the images collected in Josh Sisk's book, "Under the Strobe Light."

If you're the type who still follows cutlines, you might recognize Sisk's name. He's been a Sun contributor for years; most recently, he shot our Virgin Mobile FreeFest photo gallery.

In that time he's also been chronicling Baltimore's nightlife and music scene as steadily as Weegee once shot crime scenes.

Sisk self-published the book in April, but Midnight Sun hadn't previewed it until now. For shame!

The images in the 32-page book are from 2005 through this year, and feature a who's who - Blaqstarr, Scottie B. - of Baltimore's Technicolor nightlife, as well as many who'd fall under the who's that category.

A few of them, after the jump:

"Under the Strobe Light" costs $20. Sisk is preparing to do a second printing. To purchase, visit his joshsisk.com
