We’re over Christmas and feeling fresh from the New Year, and RuPaul is teasing all us drag fans with the latest season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
If your thirst for queens is getting too much to handle then I have the perfect solution.
James Hicks, a celebrity, beauty and fashion photographer, has recently released a coffee-table book filled with beautifully colourful images of drag queens, but not as we normally see them.
He says, “Drag Queens are typically associated with the night. They are usually only seen in the evening, performing ‘underground,’ in bars and nightclubs. I was inspired to take them out of their expected surroundings and photograph them in vivid daylight.”
The photographer has shot his subjects in a range of glamorous settings and costumes and the final product is stunning to look at.
Chicly laid out over 160 large-format, glossy pages, the sumptuous color and black-and-white images in Drag Dolls, Dames & Divas totally match the polish and “fierceness” of the ultra-fabulous, gender-bending models who grace its pages.
The book features drag celebs such as cover model All-Beef Patty (of “America’s Got Talent” fame), comedian Harmonica Sunbeam, and several contestants from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” including Tatianna, Pandora Box, Shannel, Carmen Carrera, Manila Luzon, Alexis Mateo, Mimi Imfurst, India Ferrah, Yara Sofia, Shangela, and Jiggly Caliente. Each page is a celebration of the larger-than-life characters these stunning illusionists have shaped and developed into hard-fought professional success.
A portion of the proceeds from this fabulous book will be donated to the “It Gets Better Project.”
