Half-Drag on BBC Brazil. How’s your Portugese?
This is my new portrait of performance artist, alchemist Martina Markota. Martina sent me a friend request on Facebook after she saw my Half-Drag Portait of her friend Miss Fame.I looked through her photos and was struck by her interesting and beautiful face. I asked her if we could do a portrait and this was the result. I liked it so much I just used it on a new promo piece.

On Monday, August 13 I was pleased to appear on the first live segment interview on the newly launched HuffPost Live, a new live news stream broadcasting 12 hours a day. The topic of discussion was what drag queens teach us about gender and it featured portraits from my Half-Drag . . . a different kind of beauty project and a discussion with myself live in the studio and 4 of the drag queens that I photographed via remote video chat. It mwas a lively and informative discussion and the feedback has been greaat. here is the clip.
It’s good to see more of America jumping on the band wagon.
This is what the term “gone viral” is all about. Every time my project appears on a blog, website or an online magazine I get contacted by others, or it just pops up on it’s own. In this case I was contacted by ABCnews.com as a result of Italian Vogue. In the past month my Half-Drag has appeared on over 50 sites all around the world (that I know of) with new ones popping up every day. This project is really resonating with people!
Seven of my Half-Drag shots have been featured in an article on the highly regarded fashion, beauty, trends and style blog Refinery29. Some nice text is included in the article.
I’m very pleased to announce that my Half-Drag project has just been featured on the online version of Italian Vogue. Little did I know when I started this project that it would take on a life of it’s own. A special thanks to all of the great queens here in NYC that wanted to take part in this project. You guys/girls have been the best.
