Beautiful Photos of Drag Queens in Half Drag

The world of drag queens involves a lot of make-up that is sometimes a world apart from their real faces. Leland Bobbe, a wonderful photographer from New York, has captured unaltered portraits of these stunning performers in half-drag in an on-going project titled, “Half-Drag…A Different Kind of Beauty”.

The fascinating series of portraits that examine the idea of gender fluidity by showing New York City drag queens in half-drag has earned Bobbé several awards and exhibitions, along with some well-deserved press attention.
