“These images are part of an ongoing series of portraits of Drag Queens in half drag.” Leland Bobbe says about his latest project, which capture both sides of some of New York’s drag queens. “With this series my intention is to capture both the male and the alter-ego female side of these subjects in one image. Through the power of hair and makeup these men are able to completely transform themselves and find their female side while simultaneously showing their male side. These are composed in camera and are not two separate images joined together.” [via thaeger]
