Drag Queen Cowboys at Photo London Digital 2020

After a turbulent year for the galleries, museums and exhibitions planned, Photo London have taken their programme online. They are showing some new work from an exciting new project 'Drag Queen Cowboys' which I was working on before Lockdown. These incredible artists collaborated with me to make a series of portraits. Shot in similar locations to John Houston's 'The Misfits' with Marilyn Monroe, and reinforcing the strong connections of the West. This series shows these performers away from their natural habitat of clubs and bars. After a bit of persuasion, I convinced them to be photographed in daylight without any artificial lighting on a 5x4 plate camera with black and white film, and no re-touching. It was a leap of faith...
