Double Take: We Can't Stop Staring At These Half-Drag Portraits

Perhaps all guys have a feminine side, but not every man can be a queen. This new portrait series by photographer Leland Bobbé explores the dichotomy of that rare creature in its full glory. Every shot is made up of one-half everyday Joe and one-half painted peacock — and we can't look away.

    New York-based photographer Leland Bobbé has captured portraits of drag queens in half drag for his ongoing project 'Half-Drag . . . A Different Kind of Beauty.' "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," Bobbé says.

Kenneth J. Harvey by Galit Govezensky WyomingGeezer says: Galit Govezensky does not list where she is from. She seems to specialize in portrait work and photography of the human condition. This is what attracted me. The detail she is able to capture is stunning. I look forward to learning more about her and how she is able to capture such emotion in her work.

#Photography, #People, #Portrait Some communities of indigenous people refuse to have their pictures taken. They believe that the camera might take a part of their soul, their spirit. This is exactly what I am trying to do when photographing people. I try to capture some of their spirit, to freeze and can some of their soul. I believe that the human spirit is endless, so no worries... :)
