Leland Bobbe, fotógrafo con sede en Nueva York, ha recopilado una serie de sorprendentes y complejas imágenes que examinan más allá de la persona drag queen, que consiste en, sus controversias y multifacéticos aspectos. Su proyecto en curso, ‘Mitad Drag… Un tipo diferente de belleza’, ha tenido un gran impacto. En consecuencia, el fotógrafo ha aterrizado en varios premios y ferias de arte internacionales.

La colección ofrece al espectador una perspectiva interesante. Estas fotografías, compuestas y estilizadas por medio de la potencia de la peluquería y maquillaje, se capturan en una toma, y no son digitalmente compuestas- lo que lleva mucho trabajo hacerlas, sabiendo que el proceso podría haber sido más fácil de haber utilizado Photoshop u otros programas de edición.

“Con esta serie mi intención es capturar los alter ego tanto de los lados masculino como femenino de estos sujetos en una sola imagen con el fin de explorar el cruce entre hombres y mujeres, y eliminar las barreras físicas que los separan.” – Leland Bobbé

Leland Bobbé, a New York based photographer, has compiled a series of stunning and complex images that further examine the drag queen persona, what it consist of, its controversies, and multifaceted physical aspects. His ongoing project, ‘Half-Drag… A Different Kind of Beauty’, has made a huge impact. Consequently, landing the photographer several awards and features in international art fairs.

The collection provides the viewer with an interesting perspective. These photographs, composed and stylized through the power of hair and makeup, are captured in one snap, and are not digitally composed- which is a lot to take on, knowing that the process could have been much easier having used Photoshop or other editing programs.

“With this series my intention is to capture both the male and the alter ego female side of these subjects in one image in order to explore the cross over between males and females and to break down the physical barriers that separate them.” – Leland Bobbé
