ARCOmadrid Edition Featured Artist: Leland Bobbé
Leland Bobbé, Half Drag: Pusse Couture.
Half-Drag . . . a different kind of beauty: These images are part of an ongoing series of portraits of drag queens in half drag. With this series Bobbé captures both the male and the alter ego female side of these subjects in one image, exploring the cross over between males and females and breaking down the physical barriers that separate them. These images, showing the remarkable transformation through hair and makeup, are composed in camera and are not two separate images digitally composed. Leland Bobbé's Half-Drag series was recently featured in Vogue Italia, Huffington Post and ABC News Online.
