Take a look at Leland Bobbé’s unique portraits of drag queens in New York, featuring both personas in a single image.
These exceptional portraits of drag queens were taken by New York-based photographer Leland Bobbé.
The series, titled Half-Drag… A Different Kind of Beauty, initially started when Leland met a drag queen at an industry party, and thought it would be interesting to take a portrait of him showing both sides of his persona. Instead of taking two portraits, one with make-up and one without, and merging the results in post production, Leland decided to shoot the portraits in single takes without any digital compositing, resulting in a very unique series of images.
