I am 100% jealous of drag queens and it is the most healthy jealousy of all. They are beyond fierce and confident and can entertain like no other. And to turn on this personality for audiences and kill it every time is a true talent and great outlet for the men behind the make-up. Photographer Leland Bobbé’s literal documentation of the two personalities living in one man shows the intense transformation from one ego to the other. See more dual personalities of the performers after the jump!
Leland Bobbé’s photos definitely took some time to compose. The on-set make-up artists took nearly two hours on each entertainer with the precise halfway line stressing the striking difference between the two selves. The results are indeed striking and also gives great praise to the mastery of make-up artistry. Bobbé share his concept behind the collection:
“I thought by shooting really tight portraits it would enable me to accentuate the differences in the male female sides.
What do you think of these photos? Are you a fan of drag queens?
